Greenwood Project Scholars Fund

The Greenwood Project Scholars Fund

Celebrating the resilience of the prosperous Greenwood neighborhood in Tulsa known in 1921 as “The Black Wall Street”

We are launching The Greenwood Project Scholars Fund to honor the prosperous community of Greenwood in Tulsa OK. The Greenwood Project was inspired by this town known as "Black Wall Street", and through our mission we are helping our scholars build generational wealth, starting with themselves.

The name “Greenwood Project” was chosen because founders Bevon and Elois Joseph wanted our Scholars to carry on the legacy, spirit and resilience of the people of the Greenwood community in Tulsa.

The self-sustaining 1921 Greenwood neighborhood had churches, restaurants, schools, hotels, grocery stores, movie theaters as well as Black lawyers, doctors, teachers and entrepreneurs.

At Greenwood Project, we rang the closing bell at Nasdaq in May of 2021 to launch the Fund. This campaign supports our Scholars and the work we do with partner financial services firms to increase the number of qualified entry-level Black and Latinx employees.

Each of our students reminds us that there is no lack of talent, just a lack of opportunity and Greenwood Project exists to close that gap.
