We Give Black Fest

What is
We Give Black Fest?

A three-day annual festival, powered by CLLCTIVLY, dedicated to social change, resource mobilization, and the celebration of culture as the foundation of community-driven wealth.

We Give Black Fest will be filled with incredible talks, engaging panels, empowering activations, dynamic demonstrations, and the opportunity to grow your community over good music, good vibes, and good food.

Each year during Black Philanthropy Month and Black Business Month, we host a unique blend of dynamic events to amplify Black Baltimore:
