Research from Across the Nation: Funding for Black Male Achievement Increasing

Funding to improve the lives of African-American boys and adults totaled $64.6 million in 2012, up from $40.4 million in 2011, says a report from the Campaign for Black Male Achievement.

CBMA finds both the number of grants and total grant dollars designated for black male achievement have trended steadily upward since 2003 — reaching a cumulative 1,791 grants and nearly $246 million over the ten-year period, with more than half the grant dollars distributed in the last three years.

In 2012, the average grant amount increased to $174,216, from $136,087 in 2011, although the number of foundations awarding grants in this area fell from 114 to 98.
