Black to The Future Building leadership and organizational capacity of Black founded Black-led and Black serving non-profits in Canada

What is Black To The Future?

“Black To The Future” is a visionary initiative spearheaded by the esteemed organization, CEE Centre For Young Black Professionals, dedicated to propelling the future of Canada forward through the empowerment of black-founded, black-led, and black-serving non-profit organizations. This groundbreaking program stands at the forefront of change, fostering leadership and organizational capacity within Canada’s vibrant and diverse black community.

Our Purpose

Canada is home to a rich tapestry of cultures and communities, with the black community contributing significantly to the country’s social, cultural, and economic landscape. “Black To The Future” embodies the spirit of empowerment and inclusivity, seeking to address systemic barriers that have historically hindered the growth and impact of black-led non-profit organizations. This initiative aims to create a more equitable and inclusive Canada where the contributions of black Canadians are recognized, celebrated, and fully realized.

Event and Youth Initiative Grants

The Canadian Race Relations Foundation is now accepting applications for the second round of our National Anti-Racism Fund (NARF)’s Event and Youth Initiative Grants. The National Anti-Racism Fund is one of the ways that the CRRF supports communities across Canada in the fight against racism and discrimination.


Maximum of $10,000

The CEE Centre For Young Black Professionals introduced a grant board on their “Black To The Future” website with the primary intention of bridging the gap between grassroots organizations and potential funding opportunities. Recognizing the pivotal role that grassroots organizations play in fostering community growth, empowerment, and positive change, the CEE Centre understood that many of these entities often operate with limited resources and may lack the necessary connections to access funding sources.
