The Association of Black Foundation Executives (ABFE) was established in 1971 by forward-thinking, Black foundation executives to promote effective and responsive philanthropy in Black communities. As the first official affinity group of the Council on Foundations, ABFE is the champion of diverse leadership in philanthropy. Progress is defined by a substantial increase in the number of Blacks as leaders and emerging leaders within the philanthropic field. Today, ABFE counts among its members some of the most influential staff, trustees and donors of grantmaking organizations who are intimately involved in shaping the focus, decision-making and response of foundations toward Black communities.
