Community organizations often work in silos, these silos lead to fragmentation, fragmentation leads to duplication, and duplication leads to wasted resources – time, talent, and treasure. We are creating an ecosystem to foster collaboration, increase social impact, and amplify the voices of Black-led organizations in Greater Baltimore.
Jamye Wooten, Founder
I am digital communications and social impact strategist. In 2019, I launched CLLCTIVLY to foster collaboration, increase social impact, and amplify the voices of Black-led organizations in Greater Baltimore. Our mission is to end the fragmentation and duplication of programs, to learn from and about each other, and to be a resource for the Greater Baltimore community that seeks to find, fund and partner with Black social change organizations. Since our launch, we have invested over $50,000 in Black-led organizations.
On the Horizon
In response to COVID-19, we launched the Baltimore Black-led Solidarity Fund with the goal of providing fifty (50) $500 micro-grants to Black-led and Black-owned organizations in Baltimore.
In celebration of Black Philanthropy Month, we will host our 2nd Annual CLLCTIV GIVE, a 24-hour day of giving to support Black-led organizations on August 7th. We also invite the community to join our Black Future 360 Giving Circle which offers an opportunity for the community to explore our common interests, set giving priorities, and pool our resources to make a greater impact.
Finally, we will be adding new features to our platform that include events, volunteer opportunities, skills bank, and Amplify, our multimedia project highlighting the work of Black-led organizations serving in Baltimore.
