The Foundation for Black Communities is proud to announce its Investment Readiness Program (IRP) in partnership with Community Foundations of Canada (CFC). 

Through IRP, FFBC aims to boost Black social purpose organizations’ (SPOs) participation in social innovation and social finance by directing $1.5 million of IRP funding towards the entrepreneurship and innovation thriving in Black communities throughout Canada. Black SPOs can choose to submit the same project to both FFBC and CFC to improve the chances of receiving IRP funding.

FFBC will be accepting IRP applications from September 29, 2022, to December 1, 2022.

Join us for a free webinar on IRP funding on October 11, 2022, at 6:00PM – 7:30PM ET to learn more about the application process. Register here.
