Message from the CEO

WHAT BLACK MEN AND BOYS NEED...ARE BELIEVERS AND PARTNERS WILLING TO INVEST GENERATIONALLY IN THEIR ABILITIES, ASSETS AND DREAMS. Shawn Dove, CEO, Campaign for Black Male Achievement

Catapulting Into 2019 with Increased Risk, Urgency & Momentum for Black Men and Boys

Since its founding at the Open Society Foundations in 2008, the Campaign for Black Male Achievement (CBMA) has leveraged more than a quarter billion dollars in investments to support Black Male Achievement. Yet, even as we celebrate this 10-year milestone, there remains much more to be done to sufficiently address the peril and the obstacles facing our Black men and boys. 

What Black men and boys need are not saviors to swoop into their lives and communities with prescriptions for their survival in America. Rather, what they need are believers and partners willing to invest generationally in their abilities, assets and dreams. 

By making an end of year donation, you will be contributing significantly towards improving life outcomes for Black men and boys in cities and communities across the country. Specifically, you will be helping CBMA to: 

  • Continue building our Black Male Achievement (BMA) network of 5,700+ members. 
  • Launch local initiatives focused on Black Male Achievement in cities across the US. 
  • Produce more fellowship opportunities for leaders in the BMA field

As CBMA embarks on the next phase of our work, we hope you will join our movement with the increased risk, urgency and momentum required to help generations of Black men and boys thrive. Let’s lean into this work together to create true and lasting change for many more decades ahead. 

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year! 

Sincerely, 

Shawn Dove, Chief Executive Officer
