Black Art Futures Fund Advisory Board
Black Art Futures Fund (BAFF) is excited to announce our first open call for BAFF 2019-2020 Advisory Board Members.

We are a collective of emerging philanthropists promoting the elevation and preservation of Black arts & culture. We provide grants to small ($750K or less) nonprofits working to enhance the future of Black arts & culture. Through grant making, board-matching, and organization-to-donor cultivation, we seek to amplify and strengthen community centered artists and arts & culture organizations. Join us as we shape the future of Black Art!

BAFF Advisory Board Members are individuals passionate about the arts and preserving a cultural infrastructure for Black art organizations throughout the country. We welcome individuals from all walks of life who are interested in developing and sustaining a new relationship to philanthropy as we work to ensure a thriving arts sector for small to midsize institutions. Advisory Board members will serve a one-year term with the option to renew for an additional year.

In conversation with the BAFF Board of Directors, Advisory Board members will decide upon a meaningful annual gift, with a suggested minimum of $250 annually. The financial commitment can be done in installments.

Advisory Board applications will be accepted and reviewed from August 1st -31st. Interviews will be conducted early Fall 2019 with an official on-boarding occurring shortly thereafter.
