Beyoncé Celebrates 39th Birthday With $1M Donation To Black-Owned Small Businesses
While the record-shattering pop star is known in part for her concern for social awareness, eyes widened at the announcement that singer Beyoncé Knowles-Carter planned to donate another $1 million dollars to help black-owned small businesses. She happened to make this donation on her 39th birthday, today.
BeyGOOD announced on Instagram, “Proud to announce $1M in additional funds from Beyoncé to help Black-owned small businesses. Round two of funding opens this month with our partner, NAACP.”
In July, BeyGOOD collaborated with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in the founding of the Black Owned Small Business Impact Fund.
