The Quadpay Juneteenth Fund

About

Juneteenth is a holiday to mark the issuing of General Order No. 3 on June 19th, 1865. This order, which came after more than two years following the Emancipation Proclamation, brought news of the end of slavery to the state of Texas. Since then, Juneteenth, also known as Jubilee and Emancipation Day, has become a chance to appreciate the culture and contributions of African-Americans as well as a time to reflect on the issues and injustices that African-Americans face to this day. To this end, Quadpay welcomes our employees to take this time to donate to one or more of the worthy causes below that seek to empower African-American communities socially, economically, and politically.

The Hidden Genius Project

The Hidden Genius Project trains and mentors black male youth in technology creation, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills to transform their lives and communities.

Innocence Project Inc

The Innocence Project was founded in 1992 by Barry C. Scheck and Peter J. Neufeld at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University to assist prisoners who could be proven innocent through DNA testing. The Innocence Project's groundbreaking use of DNA technology to free innocent people has provided irrefutable proof that wrongful convictions are not isolated or rare events but instead arise from systemic defects. Now an independent nonprofit organization closely affiliated with Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University, the Innocence Project's mission is to free the staggering numbers of innocent people who remain incarcerated and to bring substantive reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment.

National Black Justice Coalition, Inc.

The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) is a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). NBJC's mission is to end racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ bias and stigma. As America's leading national Black LGBTQ civil rights organization focused on federal public policy, NBJC has accepted the charge to lead Black families in strengthening the bonds and bridging the gaps between the movements for racial justice and LGBTQ equality. Since 2003, NBJC has provided leadership at the intersection of national civil rights groups and LGBTQ organizations, advocating for the unique challenges and needs of the African American LGBTQ community that are often relegated to the sidelines. NBJC envisions a world where all people are fully-empowered to participate safely, openly, and honestly in family, faith, and community, regardless of race, class, gender identity, or sexual orientation. NBJC's programmatic work aims to build partnerships and provide cultural competency training and education—moving beyond tokenization to more intentional diversity and inclusion strategies in both African American spaces and in LGBTQ spaces.

This realignment will help us speak with a more powerful political voice and channel our resources more efficiently.
