Philosophy

Our 3 steps to building scalable projects 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 possess critial intellectual property required for student academic success.

Our strategy is to capture the valuable knowledge found within Black-led grassroots to create sustainable community-designed academic support for students.

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 approach to community engagement, we understand that scalability is only achieved when multiple projects and products are integrated to improve students outcomes.

  • Gathering community input for impactful investments
  • Monitoring community educational projects
  • Tracking unique academic data points in real-time
  • Calculating investments using machine learning.

Why Partner 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 grassroots. 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 nonprofits of all sizes that are willing to give of their time, talents, and treasure.

Educating the “whole child” means prioritizing 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 are quickly expanding to other communities. Let's reimagine education and improve academic outcomes together.
