Update: Black Wealth Builders Fund Makes Its First Loans

September 2022 – The Black Wealth Builders Fund has now helped five Black homeowners buy their first homes. Locations range from Concord to Richmond to Oakland, with down payment loan amounts between $15,000 and $20,000. Thanks to all who helped make this possible.

We are gladly still accepting donations to this important cause. You can donate directly by sending a check to the Richmond Community Foundation, 3260 Blume Dr., Suite 110, Richmond, CA 94806.  Indicate Black Wealth Builders Fund in the memo line. Or you can donate online here. More information on the fund and its importance can also be found on the Arlington Community Church website. And, finally, don’t miss this just published article about the fund in the UCC News Digest. It summarizes how the fund got started and where it stands today.
