Juneteenth 2022

We celebrate and honor the Black community on Juneteenth, we reflect on the role we can take in working together against the lasting impact of slavery. 

See the full announcement here.

This year marks the third year of the Gobioff Foundation’s Juneteenth grant making. The program started initially as a reaction to the horrible murder of George Floyd and as way to acknowledge the accountability we had as philanthropists in a system that continues to marginalize the Black community. In 2021 we announced that every year on Juneteenth we would highlight 5 organizations to receive $20,000 in the form of an unrestricted grant from the Gobioff Foundation. 

The Florida Coalition on Black Civic Participation 

Center for Racial Justice in Education

Equity in the Center

Marsha P Johnson Institute

Black Youth Project

Treasure Tampa

Treasure Tampa (T²) facilitates creative placemaking – the utilization of creative talent to elevate a community through cross-sector and community partnerships – in Tampa.  Through education, collaboration, and funding, Treasure Tampa will increase the quantity of placemaking projects within Tampa.  Ultimately projects funded through this initiative will be fun and bring new reasons to why the community treasures Tampa.

Microgrants

The goal of the Gobioff Foundation microgrant program is to enhance the cultural landscape of the Tampa Bay area (Hillsborough and Pinellas counties) through small grants that encourage and make possible publicly accessible art projects and events.
