RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A non-profit is focused on reimagining philanthropy by supporting people, organizations, businesses, and non-profits, making a difference in communities of color in Virginia, Maryland and DC.

In its first year, Collective 365 gave more than $17,000 to five non-profits.

Collective 365 was co-founded by Fatima Marsh and Allison Gilbreath. It is a group of individuals using their talent, time, resources, and passion for investing in their community.

“Collective 365 supports Black & Brown leaders and organizations because only 2% of foundation giving is awarded to Black-led organizations.” the organization explains on their website. “The Collective honors the important contributions of Black and Brown communities and gives them a platform to grow into community staples that can have a lasting impact in society. Collective 365 seeks to provide grant funding and capacity building to individuals, businesses, groups, and/or non-profits who are doing the work with and for Black & Brown communities in DC, MD, and/or VA.”

Applications opened on Feb. 1 and will close on March 1.
