To expand, Purpose Built Communities reached out to its longtime partner, Truist Foundation. With a mission to advance racial equity and impact systemic change, Truist Foundation jumped at the chance to help Purpose Built Communities evolve its Racial Equity Ambassador program.
“We’re committed to partnering with nonprofit organizations that take a holistic approach to address barriers to economic mobility,” said Lynette Bell, president of the Truist Foundation. “Furthering the implementation and integration of racial equity principles into Purpose Built Communities’ network across the country aligns with our purpose and the work we’re doing to shine a light on equity, internally and externally.”
A community leader in the Racial Equity Ambassador program brought resources to a local school as part of one of their projects.
