The Souls Grown Deep Foundation is committing $1 million to impact investing as part of Upstart 2.0.

“This $1 million commitment will put our endowment funds to work in support of racial and social justice, jobs, community development, and economic opportunities in the regions that gave rise to artists represented in our Foundation. As cultural institutions grapple with misgivings about sources of philanthropy, our board decided that it’s not just where we provide support, but how and with whom we invest that matters.”

– Dr. Maxwell L. Anderson, president of Souls Grown Deep
