Black people account for 15.6% of the US population, but hold only 2.9% of the wealth.

Our Mission

Our mission is to shift people from empathy for those impacted by racism into action that dismantles it. We're starting with a focus on closing the wealth gap.

Our Black Box gifts celebrate the creativity, craftsmanship, skill, and tenacity of Black entrepreneurs by sharing fabulous Black-owned products with a wider audience, helping us all to achieve greater success.

One Black Box includes products from three or more Black-owned businesses. And corporate gift orders not only help companies diversify their suppliers, but it also introduces gift recipients to Black-owned businesses they can shop with again and again, introducing more equity into their buying patterns. This helps us all stay in business, contribute more to our communities, and encourages more entrepreneurship - all of which circulates more money in Black communities and helps to close the wealth gap.

Black entrepreneurs face systemic barriers to achieving the same success as White people in the US, including access to capital that would allow us to share our products with a wider audience.

Closing the Wealth Gap

Analysis by the US Federal Reserve explains, "In the United States, the average Black and Hispanic or Latino households earn about half as much as the average White household and own only about 15 to 20 percent as much net wealth."

From lower homeownership to higher student loan debt to lower paying jobs, Black people experience systemic barriers to achieving the same success as White people in the US.

There are many ways you can help, including being aware of and intentional about supporting Black-owned business with your spending, and supporting legislation that provides fair access to resources for historically marginalized communities.
