Give the Gift of Service this Month
August is Black Philanthropy Month, an annual global celebration of African-descent giving that aims to strengthen African-American and African-descent giving in all its forms.
Black Philanthropy isn’t new to us. For centuries, communities of color have been lifting each other up when no one else was. Represented Foundation’s mission is to empower Black and Brown social entrepreneurs so that they can realize the best world possible, help us continue this legacy of support!
Our love language? Acts of Service
Represented Foundation is asking for your help in supporting and growing our Service Groups: an online volunteer platform benefitting 30 Black and Brown social entrepreneurs over 10 weeks this Fall 2022.
Service Groups offer a unique symbiotic approach to volunteering and support, because everyone benefits! Represented partners Entrepreneur Supporter Organizations and corporations who prioritize employee volunteering strategies, to offer an online volunteer platform connecting Black and Brown social entrepreneurs with teams of high-skilled support for 6-10 week projects.
Our Service Groups offer a low-commitment, high impact opportunity to bolster existing investments into Black and Brown social entrepreneurs.
To make Service Groups happen Represented Foundation needs to raise $50,000 by August 31 to build out our SaaS community portal and bring on an engagement manager to coordinate volunteers and entrepreneurs. We're excited to announce that our funding partner the Jrue & Lauren Holiday Social Impact Fund will be matching donations up to $10,000 to help us reach our goal!
Join us in our mission to inspire, encourage and uplift the future change makers in our community
