Help Us Select Our Next Grantee Partners.

The Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium Wisdom Council will contribute to the movement for Black girls and women across 12 Southern states. Council members will inform and focus our efforts on regional/statewide issues affecting Black Girls and Women.  Most importantly, Wisdom Council members help us to select grantee partners.

The Wisdom Council is an intergenerational group of leaders who represent the 12 states served by the Consortium. Council members can be as young as 12 and will have expertise in movement building and a deep knowledge of the networks in their state and region.

The Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium offers multiple funding opportunities in the course of a year. Wisdom Council members serve as the selection committee for one grant cycle. If you join the Wisdom Council, you agree that you can be available at least 2-4 hours a month for council meetings and grant selection throughout  November and mid-December.
