The Legacy Project

Grant Awarded Fall 2020

BuildingBread will conduct a series of workshops focused on custodial accounts and 529 college savings plans to first-time parents with children under the age of one.

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 will allow 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.

The program would consist 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.
