Starting with Why
The Prosp(a)rity Project was constructed on the belief that Black girls & women deserve the opportunity to lead accomplished, abundant lives—a freedom that should be experienced by all, but due to the hurdles of systemic inequity, fueled by misogynoir (the intersection of sexism x racism), has been disproportionately difficult for this group to achieve.
Because of this, we’ve embarked on a mission to empower Black girls & women with tools for financial, professional/entrepreneurial and holistic success, which we currently fulfill through our signature program, the Economic Empowerment Initiative (EEI.)
We are guided by a vision of furthering our presence as the leading nonprofit dedicated specifically to nurturing, uplifting and advancing members of this demographic and ultimately positioning them to pay it forward to their communities and next generations.
The Prosp(a)rity Project™ is dedicated to empowering Black women in the U.S. with tools for financial literacy, as a catalyst for propelling them to higher rates of entrepreneurial/professional success and holistic wellbeing.
The Prosp(a)rity Project strives to become the world’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated unapologetically to facilitating systemic equity for Black girls and women. Through our Economic Empowerment Initiative, we’re dismantling the systemic barriers of $35B in student loan debt and a 35% average financial literacy rate that have historically prevented Black American girls/women from building generational wealth and providing direct access to opportunities at top-tier companies across a comprehensive spectrum of industries that enable them to make unprecedented impact on their own lives and surrounding communities.
