A Digital Lifeline, and Salvation via Bees: Two Great Stories from the LISC + Truist Partnership

LISC and Truist Cares have partnered to ramp up broadband and technology access, especially in rural America, and support small businesses. A $5 million grant from Truist is helping LISC address the evolving needs of entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations and families impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting recession. Read on for two remarkable stories of how that assistance is truly saving lives, and livelihoods.

LISC CEO on His Journey to LISC, and What's Happened Since

As a recent guest on In Black America, a long-running podcast that plumbs many facets of African American life, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones described the trajectory that brought him to LISC and how the organization is currently working. LISC's newest initiative, Project 10X, he explains, is a culmination and intensification of our efforts to promote racial equity and close the discriminatory health, wealth and opportunity gaps that have plagued Americans since the country's inception.

Since the outbreak of the pandemic and this year's anti-racist protests, LISC has raised some $2 billion in grants, loans and equity to fund programs that aim to upend structural racism and close yawning health, wealth and opportunity gaps. An article in CNN looks at how corporate donors have stepped up to support LISC in this work and points to what will be an ongoing need. As LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones says in the piece, “This requires faithfulness over a long time to have real transformative impact. It can't just be 2020. This has to be a new chapter.”
