When you donate to BMe, you’re helping to provide $10,000 in start-up grants to unsung, yet amazing Black leaders who save Lives, increase Ownership, expand Voting rights, and embody Excellence (L.O.V.E.).
The grants we provide are typically the very first grants that 67% of the Black-led projects we fund receive. On average, such grants typically yield 50 times the investment within the first two years. That means your tax-deductible donation is multiplied 50 times at BMe!
Among other projects, donations to BMe have helped to fund:
- Armon Henderson’s ability to rapidly Covid test and protect people who were homeless during the initial outbreak of Covid-19
- Evan Frazier’s creation of The Advanced Leadership Institute (now at Carnegie Mellon) which breaks glass ceilings by preparing Black and Brown people for senior executive leadership
- Damien Myers building a successful pre-pre-med program for Black middle schoolers in Baltimore, with plans for a national expansion
Any amount you donate to BMe recognizes and supports positive Black leaders who give love and build L.O.V.E. Help us bring their efforts to life.
