Solidarity in action
We are helping close the racial wealth and opportunity gap for black communities across America
As a part of our journey to build an economy that works for everyone, everywhere, we are investing $500M in Black communities over the next five years. We believe in doing well by doing good and as a result are committing to connect 1 billion people to the digital economy by 2025. This pledge is an extension of those efforts, connecting Black businesses to products, services, technology and financial support that will help to close the racial wealth and opportunity gap.
With half of all Black Americans excluded from the financial mainstream and Black-owned small businesses blocked from funding, we’re working to deliver immediate impact for Black communities by focusing on these three areas:
Expanding city programs to support black communities
Affordable financial tools and services
Capital and resources for Black-owned businesses
