TBLMF Grantees

Our grantees from both rounds of the Transformative Black-led Movement Fund are listed below. In total, we have 121 grantees representing communities across the Twin Cities Metro Area. Over 95% of our grantees are Black or Black-led organizations, with 5% being non-Black POC doing work that supports Black liberation. We worked hard to ensure that all grantees received between 70-100% of their grant requests, so they could actually do the work they set out to do. 

Our grantees are working in North Minneapolis, Powderhorn, Midway, the East Side of Saint Paul, Brooklyn Park, Roseville, and more. More than a third of our grantees are individuals. All of our grantees are building pieces of the future we need, a future where everyone can be safe and where everyone can thrive.
