The Black Community Building Collective started in fall 2020 as a participatory funding approach to invest in Black-led organizations. This funding model cedes decision-making power around funding decisions to the people closest to the need. This group of 15 Black nonprofit leaders—who know their communities best—will determine how this funding is directed in order to support equitable recovery and long-term viability of King County’s Black community
