About the event
AQUME Foundation is West Michigan's 1st Black founded and led foundation. AQUME Foundation is a systemic level response to the glaring national disparities in wealth and resources between White and BIPOC communities. As a result, we focus on economic justice by providing opportunities for the BIPOC community to learn about and establish intergenerational wealth through philanthropy, estate planning, workshops, and networking while integrating our core values of equity, financial investment, accountability, and community transformation.
AQUME Foundation will provide grant funding and extensive resources to benefit the BIPOC community as we experience severe and pervasive disparities in quality of life outcomes due to generations of systemic oppression via racially biased policy and resource allocation. Lastly, AQUME Foundation will also work with government and community leaders to develop viable solutions to these issues.
