Small Business Resilience Fund

Morning Consult was founded in a row house in Washington. It’s a community that has lifted us up, helped us grow, and supported us along the way.

It’s our turn to give back.

Morning Consult is starting a small business resilience fund to help rebuild and repair those that have been affected during this time, seeking to raise $1,000,000 for the Washington Area Community Investment Fund (Wacif). Wacif does incredible work to support equitable economic development in underserved communities in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area by providing access to capital and technical assistance. For 34 years, Wacif has helped underserved entrepreneurs create opportunity across the Washington region, a mission that is important now more than ever.

We all have a role to play as individuals and as an organization in addressing social and economic inequality. Morning Consult is contributing $30,000 to start the fund -- the same amount we launched our company with -- and are reaching out to you, our subscribers, to help us reach our goal and rebuild the community we know and care for so deeply.

If you have the means, please consider donating. Our donation will go to helping our community heal and ultimately build a more equitable future.

If you have any questions or would like to contribute in another way, please contact Evan Judge at [email redacted].
