About the partnership


As two organizations that believe in the power of opportunity to drive transformation in our communities, Echoing Green and Goldman Sachs One Million Black Women are proud to partner to accelerate the impact of Black women social innovators. By increasing access to capital for Black women social entrepreneurs, our partnership will fuel impact at the community level and provide technical and network support to these leaders through the Echoing Green Fellowship program. Through this philanthropic partnership with Goldman Sachs, Echoing Green will launch a new cohort of Echoing Green Fellows who are working to positively impact and radically transform the futures of Black women and girls across the U.S. — knowing that their efforts will have a global impact.

Launched in partnership with Black women-led organizations, Goldman Sachs One Million Black Women is a commitment of $10 billion in direct investment capital and $100 million in philanthropic support to narrow opportunity gaps for Black women at key moments in their lives — from early childhood through retirement and everything in between.

“We are so proud to lock arms with Echoing Green to support Black women and their boundless potential as social innovators…Giving Black women a platform to invest in their ideas is essential to closing opportunity gaps, because we know that those closest to the problems are closest to the solutions”
