The Legacy Project is a series of workshops focused on custodial accounts and 529 college savings plans to first-time parents with children under the age of one, conducted by BuildingBread.
The participants of this program are first-time African-American parents of children under the age of one who reside in Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Greenwood District also known as “Black Wall Street.”
The grant allowed The Legacy Project to provide seed funding of $100 per attendee, starting each participant’s account and apply the skills learned in the workshop in real-time. Collectively their children could have more than $50,000 over the next twenty-one years based on previous market data.
The program consists of three online workshops with up to 10 families from Tulsa.
Parents will also receive a journal to take notes and document their experience, our goal is that this journal will be passed on through the family to educate future generations.
