GREENWOOD NAMED TO FAST COMPANY’S SECOND ANNUAL LIST OF “BRANDS THAT MATTER” LEARN MORE

This is our time.

Take back control of our lives and our financial future.

Why we exist.

It’s no secret the current financial system has failed at keeping wealth in the Black and Latino community. Our communities suffer from a lack of wealth, money circulation in the Black community, and generational transfer. That is why we created a new Black owned institution. A mobile platform inspired by the early 1900’s Greenwood District, where recirculation of Black wealth occurred all day, every day, and where Black businesses thrived. Today’s Greenwood is a Black owned system developed by us, for us. This is our time. Join us now.

Greenwood is not a bank. Banking services provided by Coastal Community Bank, Member FDIC.

Greenwood Gives Back

We are proud to highlight the remarkable work of five nonprofit organizations that are making a significant difference in promoting equality, education, and cultural preservation. Each of these organizations is dedicated to uplifting individuals and communities by addressing pressing social issues and fostering a more inclusive and equitable world.

The Greenwood Chamber of Commerce, Inc. helps entrepreneurs overcome class, social, academic, and cultural barriers in the modern business world. The Greenwood Chamber will continue to advocate for underserved businesses.
  2. The King Center: Established by Coretta Scott King in memory of her husband Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., The King Center aims to promote nonviolent social change and preserve the legacy of the civil rights leader. By offering educational resources, community programs, and public events, The King Center helps keep Dr. King’s vision of a more equitable and just world alive for future generations.
  3. NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People): As one of the most influential civil rights organizations in the United States, the NAACP has been a tireless advocate for racial equality and justice since its founding in 1909. Through various initiatives such as policy advocacy, legal defense, and grassroots activism, the NAACP works to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure equal opportunities for all.
  4. UNCF (United Negro College Fund): For more than seven decades, the UNCF has played a pivotal role in providing scholarships, financial support, and advocacy for historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). By investing in the education of minority students, UNCF is empowering the next generation of leaders and making a lasting impact on the African American community.
  5. Goodr: Goodr is a trailblazing nonprofit organization that focuses on combating food waste and hunger in America.
