The Alston Beech Foundation recently awarded more than $30,000 to local nonprofits at the bi-annual Consortium Meeting. 

All organizations faced tremendous challenges this year, and the funding from the Alston-Beech Foundation was one way to support these organizations that service the North Philadelphia community.

“This pandemic has been hard on all businesses, especially nonprofits [run] by Black and brown leaders,” Kenneth Scott, president of Beech Companies, said.

“This is yet another way we are working to support nonprofits [led] by people of color, or those who support Black and brown communities.”

Since the pandemic, Beech Companies have been an instrumental resource to businesses across the region. Efforts include COVID-19 grants provided in early 2020, as well as providing more than one million in funding through the PA COVID-19 small business assistance grant.

Recipients of the Alston-Beech grant included the Chosen 300, who distribute meals and services to the homeless throughout the Philadelphia region, and the North Broad Renaissance, who will use the funds to support Black and brown businesses along North Broad Street. 

To be eligible for the ABF grant, organizations must be incorporated and classified as tax-exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code and as public charities, under section 509 (a) of that code. For-profit organizations and individuals are not eligible for funding. For the complete list of requirements, organizations should visit: www.beechinterplex.com.
