GreenLight Fund Twin Cities Overview
GreenLight Fund launched in the Twin Cities in 2020 - in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. At a time when the racial disparities that exist locally were exacerbated by the global pandemic and continued violence against Black and Brown bodies, GreenLight Fund Twin Cities made the decision to prioritize organizations that focused on collaboratively creating opportunities for inclusive prosperity within Black communities. In 2022, we brought in Let Everyone Advance with Dignity, a public health approach to community safety, designed to provide intensive, holistic care to individuals cycling in and out of the legal system. To add to our portfolio, we are currently focusing on Black and Indigenous Maternal Health as well as Mental Health for Black and Brown youth. Our goal is to remove barriers within these communities, because when Black and Brown communities succeed, we all do.
GreenLight Fund Kansas City Overview
GreenLight Fund launched in Kansas City in 2018, a vibrant community with a strong philanthropic spirit and a willingness to innovate, but also a community where ongoing and systemic racism have not created equal opportunities for Black and Brown residents and families to thrive. Responding to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, GreenLight Fund Kansas City has made investments in youth mental health - the Becoming a Man and Working on Womanhood school based counseling programs, and child care - a collaboration between national leader in family child care, All Our Kin, and Kansas City early education leader, The Family Conservancy.
