BOS FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE
The BOS Foundation was originally founded in 2014 in Buffalo, NY to solve problems created by systems of inequality. We serve Black youth, families, and neighborhoods. Our goal is to foster collective power through culture.
Our Current Initiatives
BOS x BBYG x Black Future Fridays
Aren't you tired of people misjudging, misrepresenting, and misunderstanding the culture? BOS is collaborating with Black Future Fridays to show just how beautiful and dynamic Black culture of the States is.
From December 2020 to April 2021, we delivered over 250 emergency COVID-19 bags to BOSes in Buffalo and Niagara Falls, containing masks, sanitizer, cleaning supplies, and other items to help them through a time of need.
"Black people have not suffered as individuals but as members of a group; therefore, their liberation lies in group action"
