We had an especially competitive pool of applicants (44 organizations for 13 grants) and, after a thorough review process, selected those that we felt most strongly matched our objectives.
These fourteen organizations will collectively receive $360,000 in Kapor Foundation grants specifically to support their work with young black men:
- 100 Black Men of the Bay Area, Inc.
- Athletic Scholars Advancement Program
- Bayview Hunters Point Y & College Track
- The Greene Scholars Program
- Choose College Educational Foundation, Inc.
- East Oakland Youth Development Center
- Juma Ventures
- M³ Foundation
- Meritus College Fund
- Berkeley Scholars to Cal
- Student Program for Academic and Athletic Transitioning
- Summer Search
- The Hannah Project
- Young Scholars Program
Congratulations to these organizations! We look forward to working with you!
The College Bound Brotherhood is bigger than grant status, though; we actively seek community collaboration in the Brotherhood activities that we’re planning through June 2011, including a conference, graduation celebration, and keeping collegeboundbros.org updated. Please join us in this movement through the Brotherhood listserv, collegebound AT lists DOT mkf DOT org. And stay tuned; something new from the Brotherhood will soon hit the airwaves!!
