So Others Ascend Righteously
We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to give thanks to our benefactors. Everyone who participates is contributing to our mission
to use writing as a tool to create a safe space that promotes healing and emotional literacy to others in underserved communities and to BIPOC women who need to reclaim their collective and individual
power. This would simply not be possible without the support of our main sponsors who propel us forward with their generosity and kindness. Are you interested in becoming a sponsor?

Maya Angelou Young Adult Learning Center
The Maya Angelou Young Adult Learning Center (YALC) provides year-round GED preparation and workforce development for young people ages 17 and up.
At the YALC, we are committed to providing a quality education that will foster life-long learning for our students. We strive to provide a safe, structured learning environment that is conducive to individual student needs and is specially tailored to young adults who have made the conscious decision to return to school after being away for quite some time.
The Diverse City Fund is a collective of three main groups (our Board of Instigators, Grantmaking Teams and Staff) that together help drive our mission, accomplish our goals and practice community-based philanthropy.
The Diverse City Fund supports changemakers, movement builders and community organizers of color by thoughtfully practicing community-led grantmaking, offering capacity building support to grantees and creating networking and learning opportunities for our communities.
Diverse City Fund (Silver Partnership)
Every summer, GZEP partners with the Marion Barry Summer Youth Employment Program to provide over 300 youth and young adults, ages 14 to 24, with an opportunity to learn about energy and environmental issues, complete community-based environmental work projects such as rain gardens and storm drain markers, and prepare for careers. Being a GZEP staff member is a great opportunity to work with District youth and gain valuable leadership experience.
