What Does The Black United Fund Do?
Even after nearly 3 decades some people still ask what does the Black United Fund of Illinois do? We provide funding, technical assistance and support services to non profit agencies and programs the help the grow and become self-sufficient! These agencies and programs are in the African American community and help our people and their families, since 1986 we've assisted nearly 500 organizations. We also create programs the provide training and offer skills, that make African Americans job ready we even add programs that deal with behavioral modifications so when our young people get a job, they know how to keep it. And our job retention rate is over 90%. Our annual program budget is nearly four million dollars and over 95% of that is actually spent on programs in the Black community. So now you know.
