One Million Black Women/Goldman Sachs Grant Recipient
We are thrilled to receive a Black Women Impact Grant from Goldman Sachs One Million Black Women.
Launched in partnership with Black women-led organizations, the One Million Black Women initiative, is the largest commitment of its kind in size and scope to drive investment in housing; healthcare; access to capital; education; job creation and workforce advancement; digital connectivity; and financial health to narrow the dual gender and race gap faced by Black women.
“Our research has shown us that one of the best ways to advance economic
growth is to invest in Black women. By supporting community leaders with
much-needed capital, we believe we can make a real impact.“
-David M. Solomon, Chairman and CEO, Goldman Sachs
With this grant, we will have access to unrestricted, multi-year funding to scale as we build and rehabilitate homes in Georgia’s DeKalb County and create equitable, livable, and resilient communities for excluded and marginalized groups.
We are so thankful for their belief in our mission and look forward to building on this partnership to improve the lives of Black women everywhere.
-Executive Director, Sharon Steele
