Seeds of Fortune Inc. is proud to receive a Black Women Impact Grant from Goldman Sachs One Million Black Women.
Launched in partnership with Black women-led organizations, One Million Black Women 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 opportunity gap faced by Black women due to gender and racial inequity.
With this philanthropic investment, we will have access to unrestricted, multi-year funding to grow our efforts to serve an additional 2,500 Black female high school students who have identified difficulties in affording college. This investment helps educate households of color to make strategic monetary decisions in sending their daughters to college.
We look forward to our partnership with Goldman Sachs to advance our shared mission 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.
