About us

our bin story

There wasn’t a exclusive platform for black-led nonprofits anywhere, so I decided to created my own. That’s how Blacks In Nonprofits began. I created a safe space to share the obstacles we face as leaders of color, a community to connect with each other, and obtain the resources, tips, and tools to become successful in the nonprofit sector.
Through our mentorship programs and annual conference designed specifically for Black-led nonprofit leaders to grow their nonprofits. Our conference is now the largest convening of Black-led leaders and black owned business providers who provide services to them.

Today, our mission is to help 1 million Black-led nonprofits leaders gain accelerator tools to build their confidence to operate, secure donors, and create sustainability so they can amplify their impact in the world. We are the largest database of over 27,000 black-led nonprofits leaders in the world.
