Our Philosophy

3 steps to building scalable solutions for students.

According to the Association of Black Foundation Executives, only 1.8% of philanthropic dollars go to Black-led organizations. Our core belief at the MyVillage Project is that Black-led nonprofits hold the intellectual property required for student academic success.

Our strategy is to equip these nonprofits with the recurring income necessary to sustain community-designed solutions for education.

Our Measurables

We help Black communities define their own measurables.

Each city has its set of unique challenges and assets, so we leverage pre-existing partnerships to collect authentic feedback. Using a decentralized Web3 approach to community engagement, we understand that scalability is only achieved when multiple programs and initiatives are integrated to improve students outcomes.

  • Gathering community input for impactful investments.
  • Monitoring nonprofit micro-credentialing efforts.
  • Tracking unique community data points in real-time.
  • Measuring investments by curated outcomes.

Why Invest With Us?

A few reasons why others are working with us.

We partner with Foundations to help them make investments in community collectives led by Black nonprofits. Our partners agree that student academic outcomes improve when those most impacted have the resources to implement their own solutions.

Despite the racial wealth gap, Black households give 25% more of their income annually than any other racial group. We work with local community philanthropists of all kinds that are willing to give of their time, talents, and treasure.

Educating the “whole child” means prioritizes the full scope of a child's developmental needs both in and out of schools. We help K-12 educators to better measure and quantify student enrichment outside of schools.

We started in Jacksonville, and quickly expanding to other cities. Let's reimagine philanthropy and change communities together.
