THE BLACK FATHERS FOUNDATION
Building Upon the Foundation That Is Black Fatherhood
THE BLACK FATHERS FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE
The Black Fathers Foundation operates with the knowledge that providing resources which allow Black men, as leaders of organizations and households, to carry out their work and serve most effectively, and to tell their own stories of who they are, is imperative.
Other people's perceptions of who we are do not shape our realities. We do.
Nor do the limitations others place on us define what we can achieve. We do.
“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it.”
To provide resources that enable Black men to effectively raise children and strengthen families.
Developing a national network of father/male support services, resources & advocates
Creating partnerships with national and regional fatherhood programs, as well as other organizations
Sponsoring events and activities in connection with these organizations
Providing financing to benefit individuals, families, and organizations
Scholarships (Spring '23)
Grants (Summer '23)
Creating media and content campaigns to confront misnomers about Black fatherhood.
Friends of the Foundation
"Fatherhood is both a gift and a responsibility we give to ourselves when we create a life.
When done with fidelity, it is neither a chore nor a burden, but rather a joy and a pleasure."
