BBCG works closely with various charities, providing advice in relation to a number of matters including funding and fundraising.
In addition, every year, BBCG partners up with a chosen charity of the year (“COTY”) whose cause is closely aligned with our principles of supporting the black British community.
Over the course of our relationship, we provide hands-on assistance as well as raise funds through both member donations and our marquee yearly fundraiser event, City Generosity.
Our Charity of the Year for 2017/18 was Find A Balance (FAB). FAB works to support individuals in our community who have suffered, or are suffering with mental health issues.
Work with FAB included, without limitation, updating marketing information, preparing funding/grant applications, and reviewing leasehold agreements.
FAB was also the beneficiary of BBCG’s inaugural fundraiser, City Generosity 2017 (CG 2017).
CG 2017 was hosted at Villandry in St James’s. Guest speakers on the evening included Academy Award nominee, Naomie Harris OBE and Managing Director of Infinity Capital Partners, Janet Thomas. Our event successfully raised over £2000 for FAB.
