As a response to the inequities experienced by the Black Community, the Anti Racism Fund provides capital from a pool of donations to a dynamic portfolio of curated organizations whose ethos align with ARF’s four pillars of purpose:
HEALTH & WELLNESS ACCESS
COMMUNITY OUTREACH & SOCIAL JUSTICE ADVOCACY
JUSTICE SYSTEM REFORM
Raised for anti racism
The Anti Racism Fund takes action by providing capital to organizations as a way to inject social change. We connect you with a hand-selected portfolio of organizations aligned with our Four Pillars of Purpose.
The ARF’s inaugural portfolio was called “The Take Action Initiative” — we have since selected four historically Black colleges and universities for “The Homecoming Initiative.”
Howard University is a private, research university comprised of 13 schools and colleges located in Washington, D.C.
Florida A&M University is located in Tallahassee and remains the only historically black university in the eleven member State University System of Florida.
Spelman College is a global leader in the education of women of African descent located in Atlanta, GA.
Morehouse College has had a 150-year legacy of producing educated men and global leaders and is located in Atlanta, GA.
FACTS ABOUT HBCUs
Historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are an integral part of the Black community. As institutions of higher education, they gave Black students the opportunity to obtain degrees when no other universities would.
HBCUs retain Black students – especially low-income and first generation students – at higher rates than other higher learning institutions. These schools account for a substantial portion of African American professionals and industry leaders.
YET, MOST SCHOOLS FACE SERIOUS FINANCIAL CHALLENGES
