Courier Fresh Fund - $5,000 - $25,000 Grants For Black Owned Businesses

Jul 21, 2021  -  Business

Courier is the defining media brand for a new generation who want to live and work on their own terms. Last year, we wrote an open letter declaring our support for Black Lives Matter. We believe that every voice raised against racism can help make a difference, but that words must also be followed by action. The Fresh Fund is just one of the ways we are looking to take responsibility and address the injustices that millions of black business owners face every day.
