“One Million Black Women” Grant

Inspiring Minds of Greater Philadelphia (Pennsylvania)

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.

With this grant, we will have access to unrestricted, multi-year funding to scale and add 30 students to our program who will develop leadership skills necessary to succeed upon high school graduation.

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.

About One Million Black Women 

In partnership with Black-women-led organizations, financial institutions and other partners, Goldman Sachs has committed $10 billion in direct investment capital and $100 million in philanthropic capital over the next decade to address the dual disproportionate gender and racial biases that Black women have faced for generations, which have only been exacerbated by the pandemic. The initiative, One Million Black Women, is named for and guided by the goal of impacting the lives of at least one million Black women by 2030. Goldman Sachs research has shown that sustained investments in Black women across the core pillars of housing, healthcare, access to capital, education, job creation and workforce advancement, digital connectivity and financial health will catalyze economic growth, making for not only a fairer, but also a richer society.
