Support our Work

Did you know only 16% of nonprofits are led by BIPOC, and even less by women of color? BIPOC-led nonprofits also receive significantly less grant and donor funding than their white-led counterparts. As Echoing Green and Bridgespan Group report, "Disparities by leader race repeatedly persist even when taking into account factors like issue area and education levels."

As a small BIPOC-led and staffed nonprofit, we know what we're up against. We see every year that we are able to continue operating as a reason for celebration and motivation. We are working to build a future where everyone within FBH can heal, learn, and act against injustice. Your support makes it possible for even more people to join our movement and rise — all together at once

Ways to Support

Monthly - starting at $5/month

Our Patreon network contributes an important part of our regular operating budget. Knowing that we can count of these funds every month gives us the capital necessary to plan and execute new events as well as sustainably pay our team members working on long-term projects such as our toolkits and whitepapers.

Our tiers start at just $5/month, and come with lots of special perks such as: early access and complimentary tickets to our events, private library of event recordings and resources, ability to choose books and movies for future discussions, and of course some Studio ATAO swag.

Giving Back

We believe in redistributing, not hoarding, our resources. Every year, we give monthly to support two organizations doing meaningful work within the food, beverage, and hospitality industries. We are always stronger and more resilient when we are in community and solidarity with one another.

 

If you're interested in also supporting these organizations, you learn more about them below. If you have suggestions on other organizations our team can support next year, please let us know at hello@studioatao.org!
