Black Girl Freedom Fund Grantee Partners

Black girls and gender-expansive youth have been on the frontlines of to ensure racial and gender equity and deserve to be abundantly resourced. G4GC’s Black Girl Freedom Fund is collaborating with our grantee partners to ensure that Black girls, femmes, and gender-expansive young people are living in a world where they are recognized, celebrated, seen, and free to be their whole selves.

We celebrate the wisdom and
leadership of our youth!

This year we are excited to announce that, in addition to offering funding to organizations led by and serving Black girls, femmes, and gender-expansive youth, we also being provided grants to support specific youth-led and created projects.

BGFF selected these 18 projects led by Black girls, femmes, and/or gender-expansive youth, ages 15-25, to receive $10,000 grants each. Their projects focused on the artistic vision, activism, and innovation of Black girls, femmes, and gender-expansive youth. Learn about the youth-led projects below.
