Community Impact

The ELC’s Community Impact Initiative provides financial contributions in the form of grants and partners with organizations to improve educational outcomes of black students and prepare the next generation of leaders.

The Community Impact Initiative (“Community Impact”) is a national program aimed at closing the achievement gap between back middle, high school and college students. This educational range is a natural extension of The ELC pipeline activities and the area where our investment can have maximum impact. The Community Impact Committee (the “Committee”) is tasked with providing financial contributions to select organizations and partnering with them to improve educational outcomes of black students and prepare the next generation of leaders.

Community Impact has provided financial commitments of nearly $2 million in the form of grants. We have partnered with a select number of organizations to develop an inclusive leadership pipeline of future black business leaders. Our grant recipients include:
