MN Black Chamber Black Business Support Fund

The Minnesota Black Chamber of Commerce believes that racial inequality and social injustice have no place in our business society. It’s time to come together to keep this important conversation going and help enact real change.

Over the last week, recent events affecting our Black business community across the state of Minnesota have brought those injustices and the systemic racism that have plagued our Black Owned business community to the forefront. We all must do our part to take action and make our voices heard. 

The MN Black Chamber Black Business Support Fund aims to do just that, addressing both the immediate and urgent needs of our Black Owned businesses in Minnesota; as well as the broader more systemic issues surrounding racial inequalities in business. 

At launch, donations will support Minnesota Black Owned businesses by focusing on recovering, rebuilding, and reopening efforts through this difficult period.  

This is only the first step of many we will be taking to ensure those on the ground are getting the support they need. However, we will continue to add more resources for our businesses over time and keep donors updated on the causes this fund will benefit. 

Thank you sincerely, 

Karl O. Benson
President/CEO 
Minnesota Black Chamber of Commerce
