ABOUT THE BLACK GIRLS
The Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium (Southern Black Girls) launched the Black Girls Dream Fund to disrupt current grantmaking efforts in the south and to channel greater resources toward organizations that are, intentionally, supporting and empowering Black girls and women. Southern Black Girls is excited to invite new applicants, who are Black women-led projects and/or organizations within our 13 state region, to apply. The 2024 Black Girl Dream Fund offers general operating grants to support the capacity of organizations that care for Black girls.
The Black Girls Dream Fund offers support in five categories: Education, Health + Wellness, Economic Opportunity, Social Justice, and Leadership + Empowerment in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, East Texas, West Virginia and Virginia.
We engage our Wisdom Council to select which applications will receive awards. The Wisdom Council is composed of Black women leaders of organizations or projects in our 13-state region. Notifications of awards will take place in January 2024.
