Last night, four area nonprofits became the latest recipients of funds from the Birmingham Change Fund. The BCF has existed since 2004, consisting of “young professionals who desired to improve the quality of life of African Americans in their community.”
Pathways, Need a Chance, Treasure Arts and the Birmingham Urban League Young Professionals collectively received $5,500 during a reception at Events by LaNetta in downtown Birmingham to be used towards doing just that – the result of those young professionals forming a giving circle with support from Hindsight Consulting and the Ford Foundation. The special purpose fund is maintained at the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham.
The image above shows representatives from Treasure Arts receiving their grant. Check back later this evening for photos of the recipients at yesterday’s ceremony.
