Our Philanthropic Focus Areas prioritize three critical areas that require immediate attention
African American Families | Education | Health & Wellness
As an organization, we recognize that the African American community faces unique challenges that require targeted solutions. We understand that investing in the well-being of African American families is crucial to building strong communities. This is why we support programs and services that address the root causes affecting long-term outcomes for African American children. We believe that by focusing on innovative solutions, we can help improve the health and wealth of African American families and communities.
Education is also a key focus area for us. We believe that every child deserves access to quality education, regardless of their background or zip code. Our goal is to support organizations that provide educational opportunities for underserved communities, particularly those that serve African American students.
Finally, we recognize that health and wellness are essential to the overall well-being of individuals and communities. We support programs that promote healthy lifestyles, increase access to healthcare services, and address health disparities that disproportionately affect African Americans.
We are committed to making a positive impact on the African American community by supporting programs and services that address critical needs. Join us in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of children and families that could use your support!
