THIS IS OUR HOUSE

The founders of the Alpha Light Fund see America as a house that is not yet a sanctuary to its most underserved and targeted residents.

In 2018, the founders of the Alpha Light Fund established the organization and its seven impact pillars for the specific purpose of strengthening, and reimagining this American house, so that one day all African-Americans can say with pride, "America is my home!"

SELECTION

The Alpha Light Fund supports initiatives for students and young adults that empower them to make successful contributions to their development and that of society.

 

High-impact social enterprises and nonprofit organizations are selected using a methodology that leverages:

  • multiple rounds of due diligence;

  • insight from expert networks; and

  • on-the-ground analysis.

 

This produces a holistic review of social impact, operations, and governance.
