We make domestic social impact accessible for both our consumers and clients by contributing to initiatives relevant to the communities of our consumers. Thus, 5% of our profits are contributed to supporting at-risk youth both locally and nationally.
We accomplish this through 3 channels:
Want to help your neighborhood coffee shop help your community? BLK & Bold partners with local establishments to identify, pledge support, and partner with local nonprofits focused on educational youth programming.
Employers and institutions of higher education prefer applicants with tangible experience. BLK & Bold will assist this through partnerships with offices, co-working spaces and retailers to support youth workforce development initiatives.
Estimates show that any given night more than 1 million homeless youth are in the streets. To combat this, BLK & Bold is committed to contributing to organizations that support homeless youth with shelter, resources, and guidance.
Certified B Corporations (aka B Corps) are businesses that uphold the highest standard of balancing profit and purpose. As we have been in operation for under a year, we are very pleased to announce our Pending B Corp Certification, early recognition for measuring success through social impact and are on track for full certification.
