The Minority Freedom Community Fund is a nonprofit organization with a mission to improve the lives of African Americans and minorities in the United States of America through a multifaceted approach that includes providing capital infusions, supporting existing social infrastructure, and promoting holistic wellness.
The Minority Freedom Community Fund ('the Fund’) is a public charity organized to improve the lives of African Americans and minorities in the United States of America through a multifaceted approach that includes providing capital infusions, supporting existing social infrastructure, and promoting holistic wellness.. It was established by philanthropist TeQuion Brookins in 2019 to address severe unmet need among minorities in the United States. The goal of the fund is to elevate participatory grantmaking among those who are most often the targets but rarely the voices of traditional philanthropy. Addressing the economical, social, and spiritual well-being of minorities across the country is done through a variety of programs that are led by community members, civic leaders, other nonprofits, business owners, and government agencies alike. Our delivery method primarily entails serving as a fiduciary for programs and providing capital in the form of grants, scholarships and interest-free loans, and offering technical assistance to individuals and organizations that align with our mission.
As a community fund, or goal is to ensure that the people we aim to serve have the loudest voices in our decision-making processes. To be eligible for consideration, applicant individuals & organizations must identify as a minority or provide services to minorities. Preference is given to those who have been turned away or are ineligible to apply for other forms of support due to financial, discriminatory, or other reasons.
