Partners in Principle
Calling all Black-led Businesses and Non For Profits to join a national ecosystem focused on collaboration and community.
We work with Ally groups who are doing the work to dismantle the system, and working towards change.
Our Corporate Partners are integral to the Federation. Through in kind support, monetary donations and access to resources, they allow us to move our mission forward.
Partners in Principle
If you are a Black-led Business and or Non For Profit, our Partners in Principle (PIP) group is for you. It is a national ecosystem that works in collaboration to:
- Understand the needs of our community
- Provide input and inform on FBC’s national advocacy work to advance the needs of the Black Community
- Share and leverage resources to facilitate success, including promoting each others work
We believe that we can rally around shared principles and values. PIPs do not have to part of everything FBC does. That’s why we call it Partners in Principle.
Join a national ecosystem focused on community and collaboration.
The fight towards anti-racism is a community effort and needs the support of allies and current partners to combat all types of racism, xenophobia, anti-blackness, etc.
We work in collaboration to:
- Understand the needs of our communities
- Diversify and increase our targeted audiences
- Share and leverage resources to facilitate success
We believe that we can rally around shared values. Allies do not have to be a part of everything FBC does.
Help us make a social impact today! Join our ecosystem of corporate partners who see the importance of helping the community. As a partner and supporter of FBC your company can ensure it is taking an equitable approach to its corporate social responsibility goals. FBC was founded around the principle that systemic barriers have kept the Black Canadian community underserved. Through our research, community projects, and advocacy we strive to dismantle anti-black racism and support growth in economics, health, justice, and education. We work with our national community and allies to build bridges, partnerships, and to strengthen our voice and impact for change.
Below you will find examples of ways your organization can support and work with FBC to create systemic change but do not be afraid to share your ideas as well.
We believe in transformative partnerships that will have a rippling positive social impact.
In order to strengthen the voice of Black Canadians across Canada and ensure stability in our community engagement practices, we have created various structures, tables, and groups to support our mandate such as: Provincial Hubs, a National Youth Council, an Ally and Elders Advisory and a Black Led Groups Network entitled: Partners in Principle. Corporate gifts from companies like yours, allow us to ensure that these core engagement structures remain stable, funded, and support organizing for all projects, research, and advocacy. These structures are what makes the FBC authentic, accessible, and transparent to the community supporting our mantra – “Nothing about us without us”.
Furthermore, core development of any community serving organization is always needed and we appreciate all gifts of support to ensure we can support our staff, volunteers, infrastructure, removal of precarious employment opportunities, and allows us financial stability to focus on serving the community across Canada.
