Foundation Support for Black Men and Boys Grows Sharply, Study Says

From the Chronicle of Philanthropy:

Giving for causes benefiting black males more than doubled from 2010 to 2012, according to a new report.

Quantifying Hope: Philanthropic Support for Black Men and Boys, released today by the Foundation Center and the Campaign for Black Male Achievement, explores grant-making trends for major foundations from 2003 to 2012. In 2012, the latest year for which the data were available, 98 foundations made grants totaling $64.6 million specifically designed to benefit black men and boys, up from $40.4 million in 2011 and $28.6 million in 2010.

Grants to charities that help ethnic minority males and economically disadvantaged males also increased during that time, a portion of which likely benefited black men.
