The Black Education Fund was founded in August of 2020 by a group of friends and like-minded community members who wanted to do more than just talk about making change, we wanted to take action.
What started out as an initiative to raise $5000 to support one Black student in Canada, has grown rapidly with donations to date exceeding $25,000. We believe breaking down barriers Black students face in accessing education is fundamentally important to overcome anti-Black racism in Canada. Our goal is now to provide some financial support to multiple Black students.
The BEF is a 100% volunteer organization registered as a Canadian Non-Profit foundation.
