Black Future Co-op Fund Fund
About This Fund
COVID-19 and its effects have had a disproportionate impact on the Black community, nationwide and in Washington state. The purpose of the Black Future Co-op Fund is to acknowledge the harm that systemic racism has done to the Black community in our state. The Fund will be a collective hub for efforts to eradicate poverty, build generational wealth, preserve Black culture, and celebrate the incredible resilience of the Black community. It will uplift the Black community across Washington through intentional investments in areas such as health, housing, education, art, criminal justice reform, and civic engagement.
The Fund will also invest in technical assistance, “back-of-house” support, and administrative support to the underresourced nonprofit and community-based organizations that have worked for decades in support of the Black community, providing the infrastructure they need to sustain their critical efforts. It will invest in future generations of Black children born in Washington state—so that they may have an opportunity to not only survive, but to thrive.
