Investing $100 Million In Organizations Building Equitable Communities

Moore Impact recently partnered with Warner Music Group and the Blavatnik Family Foundation Social Justice Fund (SJF) to invest $100 million in organizations working to build more equitable communities and create real change in the lives of historically underserved and marginalized people, with heightened attention to Black communities.

SJF’s initial six grant recipients include Black Cultural Archives, Black Futures Lab, Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC), Howard University, REFORM Alliance, and Rhythm & Blues Foundation.

Established in the wake of the brutal killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless other Black people, SJF will “not only work to effect structural change through our contributions but also support Black-owned and led businesses” says Camille Hackney, President of SJF and Chief Partnerships Officer at Atlantic Records/Head of Global Brand Partnerships Council at Warner Music Group.

[SJF will] not only work to effect structural change through our contributions but also support Black-owned and led businesses. 

-Camille Hackney, President of SJF

 

As a purpose-driven entity, SJF chose OneUnited Bank – the largest Black-owned bank in the United States – as its banking partner, and Moore Impact – a division of Black woman-owned advisory firm Moore Philanthropy, led by Yvonne L. Moore – as its fiscal sponsor.

We look forward to sharing more about SJF, our role, progress, and impact. To learn more about setting up your own Donor Advised Fund, contact Moore Impact.
