I'm Shaun Glaze, your favorite Grant Slayer, a researcher, grant strategist and the Founder of Inclusive Data.
In 2020, we all saw the uprisings in defense of Black lives. We saw how funders were eager to reach Black folks - and that no one really seemed to be helping Black folks learn how to get these HUGE opportunities.
I didn't want to start a business as much as I wanted to support the movement for Black liberation and get as many Black folks as much money as I could.
Honestly, I just want us to get free, y'all.
I need to get as much of what I knew out there ASAP. I'm pushing everything I know into as many Black homes as I can.
So, I made the ultimate playbook while using my over 10 years of grants experience to win over $18M in 18 months for Black communities - that's just counting the grants for Black folks y'all. Not even all the funding we've secured for community.
Funding rules have changed, and now tiny small businesses and new nonprofits are winning BIG! I know this won't last long, so I need community to really mobilize so we can all eat.
