Welcome to our 2nd annual Impact gala an extraordinary evening dedicated to celebrating achievements, fostering community, and creating meaningful change. The Impact Gala was created as a way to raise money to advance the well-being and empowerment of Black Canadians across the nation. Last year, with over 250 guests in attendance, we were able to raise an amazing $40,000 in funds to help support Black Canadians.

Empower Black Youths

with Supports for Student Learning

Join us at our Impact Gala in empowering Black youth on their journey to post-secondary education!

With your support, our Supports Student for Learning Program (SSLP) aims to provide Black youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed academically and beyond. By donating and purchasing tickets to our Gala, you can make a real difference in the lives of these talented and ambitious students.

We’ve provided 150 black youths with workshops, physical activity, 1-on-1 mentorship. Our goal is to provide support for black youths in all aspects of life. We’ve taught them about physical and mental wellness, financial literacy, employment advancement and other essential life skills.

Your contribution to our Gala Fundraising Event will directly impact the lives of these motivated and deserving students. By donating and purchasing tickets, you become a champion for educational equality and empower Black youth to realize their dreams.

Together, let’s create a brighter future!

Elevate Black Entrepeneurs

with the Black Entrepreneurship Program


Join us at our Impact Gala in elevating the black entrepreneurs of the future.

The Black Entrepreneurship Program (BEP), is a virtual mentorship program that supports Black youth aged between 16-29 years in Ontario, Alberta and Quebec. Our goal is to raise funds to assist deserving participants in the BEP to become successful entrepreneurs by joining our program.

We’ve currently enlisted 120 young black Canadians to guide them on their journey to become fully fledged entrepreneurs. Your support will help create a sustainable program that produces a strong black business ecosystem.

Our Participants are given a 4 month virtual program aimed at harnessing collaboration and creativity. They’ll learn about the nitty-gritty of entrepreneurship and how to build a sustainable business. This will be followed by a 12-month mentorship program where they’ll be paired with black business leaders to hone their skills. In addition our top participants will compete in a pitch competition with a chance to win up to $5000 in grants to start their business.

We are calling on kind-hearted individuals to purchase tickets and donate to help Black youth access these resources. Our BEP program is free, and your contribution will help ensure that we can continue to support our participants effectively. Please help us elevate the Black community, build a stronger black business ecosystem. Thank you for your continued support!

About the Organizations

The Federation of Black Canadians (FBC) is a national, non-profit organization, driven by Black organizations across the country. The Federation of Black Canadians advances the social, economic, political and cultural interests of Canadians of African descent. The overarching mantra is that we are “Stronger Together – Nothing about Us Without Us” Join us in our fight against racial injustice. Together we can create a better life for Black Canadians.

Skills For Life aligns with the “Mindset Growth Model”, which amplifies the importance of continuous learning and self-discovery. The concept was founded on the principles of exploring, confronting, and moving past failure to build on key transferable skills that can be practically applied to daily life. We organize workshops, events, and other initiatives to fill the gap between traditional learning and practical skills. We are determined to help kids from all walks of life realize the tools they have within themselves to pursue their dreams.
