Black Seed Fund
The Black Seed Fund (BSF) is Headwaters’ newest grantmaking fund. BSF makes general-operating grants to Black-led groups and supports their organizational development and capacity-building needs. The Black Seed Fund supports organizations whose work amplifies the political, cultural, and economic power of Black communities.
This year’s grantee organizations are leading work throughout Minnesota that advances Black liberation through creating access to Black land stewardship; community-led safety and care; reparative and just public policy; and increasing political power for working class, formerly institutionalized, disabled, and LGBTQ+ Black Minnesotans.
