ABOUT US

Home / About us

THE GEORGIA BLACK UNITED FUND

continues its work with all members of the organization by providing administrative assistance, program advice, fundraising support, letters of support, and the strength of membership in our multi-purpose agency, allowing the provision of services in the areas that meet general human needs, including youth , education, health, veterans, culture and arts, and overall community development. The fund will offer grants to be awarded on an annual basis to applying member organizations. Based on many years of experience, GBUF has discovered that there is no adequate referral service for the "urgently needy" that really makes a full-support effort, and as a result has developed a referral system that allows sufficient follow through to achieve maximum achievable results.

Providing support for more than 650,000 people per year, the primary objective of the Georgia Black United Fund, Inc. (GBUF) is community improvement along with positive alternatives for individuals. The secondary objective is grant making to support projects and programs that assist in building an African American self-sufficient economic infrastructure.

Organized in October 1975, GBUF is committed to bringing together the human and financial resources needed to enhance the quality of living for all.
