The National Black Chamber of Commerce (“NBCC”) is launching a prototype project that if successful will transform minority, low-income and rural communities from forgotten places into entrepreneurial hubs of economic innovation. Our goal is to create communities with access to 5G technology, integrated into low-income housing, job training, and access to telemedicine and social services. It will all be done with private sector resources.

If this prototype is successful, it will revolutionize economic development in these distressed areas.

We have the city, we have political and church support. We have private sector developers who will bid on the project.

To start this transformative effort NBCC needs your financial support to begin the on-the-ground planning work to convert the idea into a clear, workable plan that can be implemented. We need to raise $25,000 in the next month to develop the plan. That is only $25 from a thousand members or friends or $50 from five-hundred or $100 from two-hundred and fifty members or friends. If each of you makes a small donation, we will have the resources to develop this plan.
