AT ESSENTIA WE BELIEVE SYSTEMIC CHANGES BEGIN BY ACTIVELY BEING PART OF THE SOLUTION —
NOW AND INTO THE FUTURE
INVESTING IN BLACK LIVES
Focusing on the achievement, education, equality, justice, and voices of black lives is crucial to bringing about the change we all need and want. With a combined $300,000 donation, we’re proud to work with these organizations that have a long history of doing just that.
United Negro College Fund is the nation’s largest private scholarship provider to minority group members. Each year, it awards more than $100 million in scholarships to students attending more than 1,100 schools across the country.
Black Voters Matter’s goal is to increase the power and representation of Black communities. It works from the premise that effective voting, an inalienable constitutional right, allows a community to determine its own destiny.
The National Urban League is a historic civil rights and urban advocacy organization with 90 affiliates serving 300 communities, providing direct services that impact and improve the lives of more than two million people nationwide.
INVESTING IN YOUTH
Thanks to partnerships with organizations like After School All-Stars and Active Children Portland, we’re investing in helping under-resourced youth to become the best version of themselves. We all start somewhere. And believe that together there’s no limit to how much good we can do.
After-School All-Stars helps students succeed in school and in life by providing comprehensive after-school programming and transformative opportunities.
