Jordan Brand is continuing its commitment to ending systemic racism by putting actions behinds its words.
As part of the 10-year, $100 million commitment to the Black Community to fight systemic racism, Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand are going to be announcing its first cycle of Community Grants, providing a total of $1 million to local, grassroots organizations who are creating more equitable futures for Black Americans.
The first Community Grants Program cycle will open for 30 days beginning March 31 and will end on April 30. All completed applications submitted by organizations with a mission or programs that align with one of the focus areas such as racial equality, social justice, and greater access to education will be reviewed by an advisory committee comprised of members from the Jordan Brand and Michael Jordan Family Office teams.
All 501(c)(3) organizations working to improve outcomes for the Black Community, with an annual budget of $3 million per year or less, are encouraged to apply.
