What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

OPERATION: CIRCULATE BLACK - Community Development

This Fund is dedicated to the construction of new areas that will be dedicated as Safe Spaces for Blacks AND renovations to certain Black neighborhoods in order to increase the value of their property without the impact of Gentrification. One of the MAJOR projects for this is BrickTwentyTwo Park - which was launched on May 19, 2019. Please visit site to see the plans. In addition to BrickTwentyTwo Park, we are also partnering with other organizations to create an agriculture and therapeutic Safe Space for the Black community in Lassen County, California. More information on this project can be on the site. We will also be constructing shelters to decrease Black homelessness and hunger as well.

Population(s) Served

This Fund is dedicated to helping Black Entrepreneurs start AND/OR stabilize their businesses. We prefer to partner with Black Banks for the application process and to easily disburse the funds - as we are anticipating to disburse funds to over 2,000 Black businesses with the next year.

Population(s) Served

This Fund is dedicated to assist Black students with financial relief. These scholarships are open to all Black students regardless of attending an HBCU or PWI. We are wanting to stop students of getting into unwanted debt via student loans.

Population(s) Served

This Fund is dedicated to helping struggling inner-city schools with a Black population of at least 65%. The amount of schools being helped depends on the amount we have after 5% is delegated to the Fund. Money given to the schools are for certain expenses such as: updated technology, excellent-condition books, minor renovations that will improved a student's academic experience, storage with enough supplies to last a year (to relieve burdens from both teachers and parents) and "bonuses" awarded to teachers who are being denied a raise.
