Backblaze Black History Month Fund


February is Black History Month when we recognize the accomplishments of Black Americans. This year, the theme of the month is African Americans and the Arts to recognize “the many impacts Black Americans have had on visual arts, music, cultural movements, and more.” This fund supports the charities that support the African American community by promoting economic and social justice for Black Americans, fighting racism and intolerance in the United States, and supporting the contributions of African Americans in the arts. The composition of nonprofits in this fund may be subject to change.

As important as its artistic and educational mission, this performing arts community plays a social role, using the beauty and humanity of the African-American heritage and other cultures to unite people of all races, ages and backgrounds.

Center for Common Ground

We are a non-partisan voting rights organization led by people of color. Our mission is to empower under-represented voters to fully participate in democracy.Through our phone banking, texting, postcarding and election watch campaigns, and with the help of our partner organizations and thousands of volunteers, we provide voter education about issues such as checking registration status, accessing voting tools and locations, and contacting local registrars or boards of elections. Under-served communities in states known for voter suppression require voter services that include: registration, Photo ID review, rides to the polls or to pick up Photo ID, and accurate information on Restoration of Rights for Returning Citizens.
