Open Call for Black Girl Freedom Fund Applications

Applications for the 2023 grantmaking cycle are now closed

Black Girl Freedom Fund (BGFF), the largest initiative of Grantmakers for Girls of Color, is thrilled to announce our 2023 open call for applications for funding. 

Each year, the funding opportunities focus on priority areas articulated by the co-founders of the #1Billion4BlackGirls campaign. This funding cycle will focus on organizations and projects that center the artistic vision, activism and innovation of Black girls, femmes and gender expansive youth.

Funding is available to organizations and projects that are not currently funded by Grantmakers for Girls of Color. 

This year we are excited to announce that, in addition to offering funding to organizations led by and serving Black girls, femmes, and gender-expansive youth, we will also be providing grants to support specific youth-led and created projects. You can watch the video of the BGFF 2023 grants announcement here!
