Fund My Future’s Statement of our Continued Commitment towards Racial Equality and Social Equity

Since the deaths of George Floyd, Javier Ambler II, Manuel Ellis and Eric Garner, the words, “I can’t breathe,” now have added meaning. Not only are black and brown people disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but they are also battling another deadly public health crisis called racism.

We at Fund My Future are moved to pursue our work with renewed energy by the social upheaval that has resulted from these senseless killings.

At Fund My Future, we want our families and partners to know that we are committed to working with our allies to combat the injustices of unfair treatment and to ultimately eliminate systemic racism. We are more focused than ever before to fulfill our mission to help families build individual wealth and to provide families with resources that aim to uplift and empower them.

We stand firm in our commitments and encourage others to join us in this mission. We can achieve so much together.

Fund My Future will demonstrate our commitment by adding an additional $1,000 toward our monthly prize pool in July and August, giving our families an increased opportunity to save more and be one step closer toward their goal of building economic wealth.

I would like to end with a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: ​“I say to you today, my friend, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.”
