Inland Empire Community Foundation is accepting applications for the first round of grants from the IE Black Equity Fund through Sept. 22. The funding provides support to Black-led, Black-empowering and Black-serving organizations in the Inland Empire with a goal of creating better outcomes within the communities they serve.
In partnership with IE Funders Alliance and IECF, IE Black Equity Fund was created by The Black Equity Initiative – Inland Empire, a coalition of nonprofit leaders whose work is focused on ending systemic racism and building political and economic power for the Black community in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The fund has received significant support from The California Endowment, The James Irvine Foundation, IECF, and more than 50 donors.
