***ALL DONATIONS TO BUWYD ARE NOW BEING MATCHED BY AN ANONYMOUS DONOR! DONATE NOW AND DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT!***
BUWYD is a project designed to support the dreams and lives of young Black femmes and LGBTQA+ individuals in Essex County, NJ.
SFJ is committed to protecting, investing, and leveling the playing field specifically for black femmes and LGBTQ+ individuals. This is an opportunity for our community to show genuine solidarity with the Black femmes and LGBTQA+ people in the community through generous financial support.
How will it work?
SFJ will be collecting donations to give “supportive dream” grants three times over a one year period. There will be general collection periods for specific award times.
Applications for grants will be accepted until September 25. We are aiming to help 3-6 Black femmes and LGBTQA+ people per fundraising period. The grants would start at $500 each. Our above stated goals are where we would like to start, as our funding increases we will be able to increase the number of grants given, as well as the amount.
Applicants will fill out an application outlining one of their personal, financial, or professional goals. Goals can range from taking steps to become more financially stable or pursuing new professional skills, to pursuing higher education or starting a business. Click here for the application form.
We aim to give out our first round of grants by the end of September 2020.
The more you donate, the more grants we can give out!
