Through Grants for Change, Invest in Others will award grants of up to $20,000 to nonprofits that are working to create and enhance opportunities for communities of color, providing essential services to causes such as social justice, employment and education—with the goal of leveling the playing field and providing life-changing opportunities to underserved communities.

The nonprofit’s work must display a measurable commitment to corporate, social, and community contributions that enhance opportunities for Black people and other underserved groups. The types of projects/programs eligible for funding include, but are not limited to, those focused on:

  • Improving business and internship opportunities and strengthening professional networks
  • Providing opportunities for mentorship and support services to reduce barriers to entry
  • Increasing access to education, including equitable learning resources, job training/reskilling, college/career readiness, and financial literacy
  • Removing racial disparities in healthcare
  • Eliminating racial inequity in the criminal justice system

Whether you’re an individual or a company, there are many ways to get involved and further our efforts to amplify the charitable work of financial advisors and firms.
