The combination of the COVID-19 pandemic, social unrest, and a severely distressed economy poses a real and significant crisis to an already fragile safety net for the 1.2 million people that comprise Canada’s diverse Black communities.

The aim of this report is to provide a systematic analysis of the extent to which Canadian philanthropic institutions have responded to the needs of Black communities and organizations. The research and analysis in this report examines the hypothesis that the lack of attention, investment, and long-term commitment towards Black communities from Canadian philanthropy contributes to a resource and adaptive-capacity gap that impacts the sustainability of Black-led and Black-serving organizations. Therefore, there is an urgent need for a Black-led and Black-serving philanthropic foundation specifically mandated to meet the needs of Black communities.
