Grants of up to $10,000 and in-kind support to Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC nonprofit organizations, businesses, individuals, and groups that provide services to minority communities. Focus areas include
education, health, social justice, and workforce development.

Collective 365 supports Black & Brown leaders and organizations because only 2% of foundation giving is awarded to Black-led organizations. The Collective honors the important contributions of Black and Brown communities and gives them a platform to grow into community staples that can have a lasting impact on society.

In addition to the grant funds, applicants may apply for capacity building support. Collective 365 is not only committed to invest money, but also time and talent by offering applicants access to a pool of experts that can assist with supporting their work over the next 12 months.

Collective 365 seeks to provide general operating support to celebrate, build-up, and preserve Black and Brown communities. Grant funds may be utilized also for indirect costs to deliver these programs, including salaries, benefits, occupancy, overhead, equipment, and supplies, however, grantees may also allocate funds to direct costs. There are no restrictions on the percentage of indirect costs.
