Urban League of Palm Beach County Taking Part in ELEVATE TOGETHER™
The Urban League of Palm Beach County (ULPBC) is taking part in ELEVATE TOGETHER™ powered by Round It Up America® which is a nonprofit initiative designed to address systemic discrimination and historical racial disparities in business growth and profitability in Black and Hispanic communities.
Through a partnership with the National Urban League’s Entrepreneurship Centers and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the initiative helps support Black and Hispanic small businesses with five or less employees.
The ODP Corporation (parent company to Office Depot and CompuCom) is the initiative’s founding partner. The NCR Foundation also supported Elevate Together™ as a corporate partner in the initiative’s foundation year.
As part of a seasonal sponsorship opportunity, the following companies were awarded a total $30,000 in grant funds to help grow their businesses. This is ULPBC’s third co-hart of Black and Hispanic small businesses that have received funding by the Elevate Together™ Program, to further close the racial wealth gap and advance economic opportunities:
