In June, as the nation was faced with the realities of deep racial disparities, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation worked to create the Center for Racial Equity. Its goal? To provide $100 million over the next five years to organizations that could help us move the needle toward greater awareness and equity.

Today, we announced the first $14.3 million commitment of grants, which will go to 16 different nonprofits that are working tirelessly to make this country a better place to live – for everyone.

 

“Walmart has made a commitment to advancing racial equity, finding areas where we, as a company, can best contribute our resources and expertise to change society’s systems that perpetuate racism and discrimination,” said Kirstie Sims, senior director of the Walmart.org Center for Racial Equity.

 

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation remain committed to advancing equity, and will continue supporting organizations that can help us make a difference.
