The Campaign for Black Male Achievement (CMBA) is a network of over 3,000 organizations that seek to improve “the life outcomes of Black men and boys.” 1
In June 2019, the NFL awarded $2 million worth of grants to eight nonprofit organizations, including CMBA, to support their social justice causes. The NFL explained their goal is to “support programs and initiatives that reduce barriers to opportunity.” 2
