Why donate today.

For every $100 donated to a charitable/non-profit organization in Canada, as little as seven cents go toward supporting Black charities/non-profits, according to a report done by the Network for the Advancement of Black Communities and Carleton University’s Philanthropy and Non-profit Leadership program. Black charities/non-profits are significantly underfunded in Canada. Your donation today will create generational change and empower Black communities all across Canada.

How your donation will be used.

Your donation today will be used towards several programs and initiatives such as the BlackNorth Homeownership Bridge Program, The BlackNorth Academy, BlackNorth Work-Live Program, RiseUp Youth Helpline, BlackNorth Scholarships and many other initiatives focused on empowering the Black community.
