Jrue and Lauren Holiday announce the Milwaukee recipients of their social impact fund

While the playoffs for the Milwaukee Bucks have been challenging, off-the-court Milwaukee Bucks star Jrue Holiday and his wife Lauren have shared some good news for several Black-owned businesses and Black-led non-profits, including some right here in Milwaukee.

The couple's Jrue and Lauren Holiday Social Impact Fund announced the second round of funding for 25 Black-led nonprofits and 25 Black-owned businesses located in four cities including right here in Milwaukee. The fund distributed $1 million to these non-profits and businesses which also includes 16 weeks of business coaching, training and mentor-ship from The Kinship Advisors and FundBlackFounders executives.

"We are so excited to announce the 2021 JLH Fund round 2 grantees and provide much needed funding to the businesses and nonprofits that need our support. With the addition of coaching and training cohorts provided to the recipients, we also extend the extra resources needed to help them thrive. We look at all JLH Fund recipients as part of our extended family and we could not be more thrilled to be working with these businesses and nonprofits," said the Holidays.
