Do It Now Now report: Common Call Fund Two: insights from applications to a Black-focused grant fund

Do it Now Now’s initiative, Common Call, set out to achieve something that many people in the impact sector thought impossible; persuading trusts and foundations to reconfigure their funds to create new Black-led specific funding pots, and for those funds to operate in tandem with other programmes open to Black-led organisations.

​Prior to Common Call’s existence, funding to Black-led charities and social enterprises in the sector was commonly restricted to large, well-resourced, mainstream organisations, with evaluation teams and the capacity to maintain relationships with funders.

The Common Call fund stands as a bold new fund, representing a significant change in direction.
