Grants For Black DadPreneurs This Father's Day + 2 Year Update
Published on June 15, 2022 by James Oliver

Greetings everyone,

Thanks so much for your support these last two years. Without you, we couldn't empower Black ParentPreneurs, so they can leave a legacy for their beautiful Black children.

Here's some of what we accomplished thanks to your help: 

  • Paid for 320 mental therapy sessions. This is huge because mental health is stigmatized in the Black community and we are shattering stereotypes. 
  • Gave $100K in grants to outstanding Black ParentPreneurs that were used to grow their businesses and ease their parenting burdens. 
  • Grew our community to 2,000 members with Black ParentPreneurs around the world who have each other's backs. 
  • Spent our social capital to help our ParentPreneurs raise over $1 million to fund their businesses.  
  • Partnered with the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center and the JP Morgan Foundation to better understand why underestimated entrepreneurs don't get access to early investment capital. 
  • And much, much more! 

Father's Day Grants This Year

Right now, our community is voting to see which five dadpreneurs in our community will receive a $1K grant for Father's Day. We started the voting yesterday and are humbled by so many amazing dads in contention for the grant. Take a look at the video below that shows the leaderboard and the outstanding work our DadPreneurs are doing to leave a legacy for their beautiful Black children.

With your support today and tomorrow, we could give grants to more than five dadpreneurs! Winners will be announced this Friday.
