Harlem Capital Launches Challenge Grant for Harlem Children’s Zone


Donate here to provide Harlem’s children with the learning tools and resources they need to thrive.

Harlem Capital, a New York-based venture capital firm focused on investing in women and minority entrepreneurs, today announced its commitment to support the Harlem Children’s Zone (HCZ) COVID-19 Emergency Financial Relief Fund.

Harlem Capital is working with the local non-profit to launch HCZ’s first ever “Challenge Grant” program through which Harlem Capital will match all participating donations up to $10,000. All funds raised through this joint effort will be used to provide local children with the technology and resources they need for remote learning.

“Teaming up with HCZ to support the remote learning needs of Harlem’s future leaders was a natural fit for our firm, which was founded in Harlem and is dedicated to fostering a more equitable and diverse entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Jarrid Tingle, Managing Partner at Harlem Capital.

Harlem Capital is calling on their loyal community to join them in providing remote education tools and technology to the children of Harlem, NY.

To participate, please donate here and Harlem Capital will match your contribution.

If you prefer to donate via wire transfer please contact Cristela De La Cruz (email: cristela.de_la_cruz@ml.com / tel: 415–274–6016).
