The Fund is a perfect way for anyone, accredited or not, to end prejudice in commercial lending for Black-owned businesses through philanthropic contributions.
Donations go to Realize Impact, a 501(c)(3) public charity focused on making impact investing easier. In 2020 RI launched a new investing service to fill the gap for donors, donor advised funds, and foundations, working with Denkyem, the Seattle Foundation and others.
