Donors & Donations

This section is for donors only. All donations to the BLAC Foundation may, at the will of the donor, either be made for a specific request for funding or they may be available to the Foundation to decide where funds should be spent (i.e. administrative costs, project support, travel grants, etc.). However, 10% of the donation made directly to the submitters of funding projects will be subtracted from the grant to help pay for Foundation administrative costs.

Questions about donations should be directed to

Century and Millennium Clubs: These two clubs were established in 2009 to recognize and reward foundation supporters for their financial contributions to the foundation. Those donors who make a single contribution of $100 or more (but less than $1000) gain membership in the "century club", and those who make a single contribution of $1000 or more are enrolled in the "millennium club". As a member of either club supporters will receive an "Early African Presence in New York" kit (as advertised on this site) and will also be eligible for other gifts and subscriptions as they are developed. In 2010 the foundation plans to make t-shirts for current club members and there are other planned items on the horizon such as electronic newsletters, electronic journals, etc. All contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible and so all donors will receive certified confirmation of their contribution for IRS purposes.
