We want to end the year by first thanking you for everything you do to ensure our boys and young men can achieve their biggest dreams. Whether you’re a partner, donor, MBK Community Leader, or a friend and supporter, you give us the fuel we need to keep this movement strong and growing.
It’s been almost two years since the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance became a part of the Obama Foundation family. Since then, we’ve been refining our approach to best support the extraordinary leaders who stand up and show up for our boys and young men everyday.
This year, we took a step back and decided to focus on what matters most and ensure we’re maximizing our tools, time, and resources to create the biggest impact. I could not be more proud that we will end 2019 having invested $5 million into some of the nation’s most innovative organizations—organizations that are driving policy reforms and scaling effective programs to serve thousands more boys and young men of color than they were a year ago.
In addition to that significant investment, here are our top six highlights of what we’ve been up to in 2019.
Finally, I want to thank all of you—for making this past year such a memorable one, and for working tirelessly to address the barriers facing boys and young men of color. Wishing each of you a happy and restful holiday break with family and friends.
