Our Impact: Creating programs that help collect and disseminate important information
Our Mission: We aim to be a trusted leader in organizing people to support philanthropic causes in the Black community. We enhance support for implementing effective capacity-building for people and organizations by mobilizing additional financial, social, and intellectual resources. We will provide efficient and effective services to build a collection of permanent funds.
Your investment in The Penny Foundation is stewarded by a staff, volunteers and board of directors committed to providing programming that supports and affirms the Black community.
