Black-led organizations serve the most immediate needs of the community including economic security, health, education, and workforce development. Yet they receive 24% less funding than their White counterparts (2019, Young Black and Giving Back Report). Beyond Wordz is here to fill that funding gap through various fundraising strategies and storytelling.
