It's been brought to our attention that the location one building on the corner of 63rd St. and Citadel Dr has been sold to a developer in Omaha and their plans to build affordable houses would displace over 150 black owned businesses. We can't afford to have that many black owned business go out of business just like that. We plan to come together with these businesses and form a plan to keep them in business.

If 15,000 People Donated $10 A Month

Led by You and Me

Our goal is to provide grants to Black-owned businesses in Kansas City, with a specific interest in businesses that operate in low income areas. 

We believe this will create more jobs and potentially convert an economically disadvantaged area into an area of economic opportunity.

We aim to assist in creating generational wealth, while also reducing instances of poverty related crime and violence in our communities.
