NAACP x BeyGOOD, a meaningful partnership for our community

Earlier this week, I made a commitment to you that NAACP will dedicate the next decade to advancing Black Economic Sustainability. Well, I’m proud to announce that one of our most promising partnerships has launched today – a joint program with BeyGOOD, a global initiative founded by Beyoncé.

The Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund, administered by NAACP in partnership with BeyGOOD, is a meaningful program that aims to assist our small business communities that have been directly impacted by the recent events across the country. The grants in the amount of $10,000 will be offered to Black-owned small businesses in select cities to help sustain businesses during this time.

At such a critical time for our nation, it is absolutely vital the most vulnerable people in our community have access to resources that can empower them socially, politically and economically. We are thrilled to partner with BeyGOOD to help strengthen small Black businesses and to ensure economic sustainability for our communities.

I can’t overstate the importance of this program to Black businesses, especially those who are faced with an uncertain future in the wake of COVID-19 and nationwide protests. Please, if you or a business you know is eligible for the grant, I implore you to apply today.
