Is your organization aware of BMAfunders.org?
The Foundation Center and the Open Society Foundations recently launched the web portal BMAfunders.org to facilitate engagement, collaboration, and strategic decision making among funders, nonprofits, and policymakers working to promote positive outcomes for black men and boys in America. The site is supported by the Campaign for Black Male Achievement, in which the Open Society Foundations has invested $50 million over the past five years. BMAfunders.org supports those working to reverse the damage done by years of systemic injustice by providing access to a variety of knowledge resources, including:
- A mapping tool that fosters collaboration by showing who's funding what program, where;
- A timeline of philanthropic milestones that sheds light on the historical context of the field;
- An "Outcomes Toolkit" that points users to key measures that will help them assess the impact of their work; and Research reports case studies of work on the ground that highlight innovation and lessons learned.
