A report issued last year by the Bay Area Black United Fund - Black-Led Organizations (BLOs) in the Bay Area: From Crisis to Change- noted that BLO’s which are lifelines to low-income Black communities are especially vulnerable due to a cumulative lack of resources to support growth, best-in-class systems, training and leadership development. Connections to mentors, coaches, experienced consultants, and other resources to assist with succession planning, board recruitment and the implementation of earned income strategies have been identified as keys to improving the sustainability of Black-Led Organizations and the communities they serve.
Resources from the briefing program include presentation, reports, profiles of Black-led organizations, and a description of the partnership opportunity.
