Do it Now Now’s initiative, Common Call, set out to achieve something that many people in the impact sector thought impossible; persuading trusts and foundations to reconfigure their funds to create new Black-led specific funding pots, and for those funds to operate in tandem with other programmes open to Black-led organisations.
Prior to Common Call’s existence, funding to Black-led charities and social enterprises in the sector was commonly restricted to large, well-resourced, mainstream organisations, with evaluation teams and the capacity to maintain relationships with funders. The Common Call fund stands as a bold new fund, representing a significant change in direction.
The Common Call Fund Two report shares insights on the current state of Black-led charities and social enterprises, previously unknown to the sector.
Looking forward, Do it Now Now is uniquely positioned to continue leading the connection between Black-led charities, social enterprises, and funders. The organisation navigates the expectations and experiences of all parties, and seeks to address the most pressing needs in the UK’s Black community.
