We exist to provide financial and educational resources to women of color who engage in entrepreneurial activities.
The K4 Foundation, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Connecticut by Dr. Natasha Wright in February 2020. The K4 Foundation seeks to assist and support women of color who dream of becoming an entrepreneur or who are new entrepreneurial activities.
The board of directors is made up of Black women business owners. Each woman that serves on the board of the K4 Foundation has a passion for helping inspire women of color. We provide small grants ($500) and educational workshops. Our awards do not have to be repaid. There is no idea too small. It is not about the concept; it is about the woman behind the concept. We want to hear your passion.
Success isn't about how much money you make. It's about the difference you make in people's lives. ~ First Lady Michelle Obama
