2 Grants, 1 Mission

Collective 365 is a membership-based group of community conscious individuals who contribute their resources to make a big impact.


Since 2020, Collective 365 has granted $55,000 to individuals, groups, businesses & nonprofit doing work with and for Black & Brown communities in DC, MD and/or VA through the Community Change Grant.  After three years of investing in the work of Black & Brown folks, Collective 365 has launched a second grant fund, the Rest & Joy Fund, to invest in the well being of Black & Brown folks.


We have two grants and one mission, which is to celebrate and invest in Black & Brown communities, unapologetically. Collective 365 has four focus areas: health, education, workforce development & social justice.  Collective 365 is proud to support the innvoation and work of Black & Brown folks, as well as the rest and joy of Black & Brown folks.  All grants provide unrestricted funding, which means we allow the grant applicant to determine how to spend the money.


In addition to providing unrestricted grant funding, Collective 365 provides capacity building to our grant applicants.
