As the only local funding initiative that is 100% Black-led and explicitly focused on strengthening Black communities, BPI is uniquely positioned to address the most pressing issues that Black residents face because of deliberate and systematic underinvestment.
BPI offers a powerful way to give back and pay it forward. Through collective giving, grantmaking, and community engagement, BPI ensures local organizations have what they need to advance racial equity and respond to community needs, particularly those in our local Black communities.
The Winston-Salem Foundation believes that investing in community-led solutions creates lasting change and made a significant initial investment of $500,000 to BPI’s campaign. We need your help to expand our impact and grow an even larger base of supporters to advance BPI’s work.
