Thousand Currents is pleased to share that Black Lives Matter formalized its relationship with TIDES, a philanthropic partner and nonprofit accelerator dedicated to shared prosperity and social justice. This unique partnership will accelerate and further the extraordinary, unparalleled successes of BLMGNP’s chapter-led, decentralized organizational model.

From 2016-2020, Thousand Currents served as the fiscal sponsor for the Black Lives Matter Global Network Project. In 2019, Thousand Currents made a strategic decision to sunset fiscal sponsorships in order to focus on its core grantmaking to grassroots groups and movements in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This transition is part of a long-planned process. Thousand Currents is exhilarated by Black Lives Matter Global Network Project’s growth and remains aligned and in solidarity with its critical call for dismantling anti-Black racism.
