MISSION

The mission of the Black Healing Fund is to assist in the fight against the mental, health, and economic impact of anti-blackness—racism—on Black and Brown communities, and to directly support programs and individuals prioritizing the continued healing of Black and Brown communities.

WHY

Because the scars of anti-blackness are centuries old, real, lifelong, and often deadly… There are many studies that have been conducted, the most recent by the American Academy of Pediatrics showing that racism in real and fundamental ways, impacts not just our health, but our chances for a good and successful life, from childhood onto adulthood.

HOW

First, when it comes to the real impact of anti-Blackness (racism), there can never be such a thing as “too much help and too many resources.” This is because the impact is not a year or a decade old, but it is centuries’ old and structural. It is reflected in every institution in our country. In fact, this is reflected in terms of who holds most of the funding, what are their priorities, and who gets funded. Our goal is to raise and provide funding to

  • Both organization and individuals, especially small, newer organizations and individuals who don’t always get opportunities to make an impact, because they don’t always meet certain “large organization that’s been in business for a certain period of time,” as a result, our communities get deprived of their expertise and newer approaches of healing.

Small, newer organizations and individuals focusing on trauma informed practices, centered around the impact of anti-Blackness (racism), will get opportunities to apply for funding. They will have to meet the following criteria:

  • Be based in the community where they will be providing services
  • Focus on racial trauma healing

                              Our FOUR Focal Pillars

Awareness & Advocacy

We strongly believe that increasing awareness about anti-Blackness, racism, racial trauma, racialized terrorism and the scars they leave behind, and advocating for systemic change is vital to dismantling systems of oppression.

Education & Empowerment

We strongly believe one of  the first major steps to helping our communities heal, become self-sufficient and self-advocating is through the education and empowerment of our community members who are center to our mission.

Decolonizing Access

We strongly believe that much of the current funding system, which has helped a great deal, will have to be   decolonized, so that there is a truly equitable access to desperately needed resources by our Black/Brown communities.

Stronger Partnerships

We strongly believe in the creation and maintenance of stronger and extensive partnerships, because that is what this work requires and will continue to require. We truly believe that it takes and will take a village (all of us) to get this done.
