Just Born Quality Confections is committed to acting boldly with integrity, authenticity, and humility to listen, learn and grow. Part of this commitment includes creating an equitable environment for all those living in the communities where we operate. It means advocating for those whose voices are historically and chronically marginalized.

Our purpose is to bring sweetness to people’s lives and can only be fully realized by pledging to value all people, all races, all cultures, all religions, all love, all genders and all abilities, because Together We Are Better.

Purpose

We are committing $100,000 to support the need for programs and initiatives intended to support Racial Justice efforts in our community. Grants provided from this fund will:

  • Advance Racial Justice
  • Promote Equity of Opportunity
  • Foster Diversity, Inclusiveness, and Belonging
  • Provide Leadership Development
  • Educate Communities about Racial Justice
  • Foster Allyship
  • Provide Educational Opportunities
  • Provide Mentorship Programs
  • Youth Development

If your program challenges the status quo, advocates for changes in policy and practice, educates the Lehigh Valley and Northeast Philadelphia communities about these important issues, and is actively working towards a solution, we encourage you to apply.

Funding requests must specifically explain how they will use the grant to change the current landscape.

Grant Size

Grants will range in size up to $10,000. Please know, the amount awarded may be different than what is requested due to the availability of funds.

Timeline

Applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis. Organizations can expect an answer within four to five weeks of submitting a request. For successful applicants, checks will be processed shortly after they are notified.

Applications for the Just Born Fund for Change are now open until June 1st, 2022. We will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis until funds are exhausted.
