Black Art Futures Fund (Due. Mar 31)

Black Art Futures Fund (BAFF) is a collective of emerging philanthropists promoting the elevation and preservation of Black arts & culture. Through grant making, board-matching, and organization-to-donor cultivation, we seek to amplify and strengthen the future of Black art. We provide grants to small (operating budget of $750,000 or less) nonprofits working to enhance the future of Black arts & culture. DéLana R.A. Dameron founded Black Arts Futures as a philanthropic initiative of Red Olive Creative Consulting in 2017. BAFF operates as a donor advised fund with the Brooklyn Community Foundation.
