( ENSPIRE Community Spotlight ) Search on Bing To Support Janelle Monáe’s Fem The Future
ENSPIRE Contributor: Anastasia Hanna
Singer, songwriter, actor, and producer Janelle Monáe is passionate about giving back. She believes in getting resources to those in underserved communities to empower them to live their life with dignity, and ultimately, achieve their dreams. That’s why in October 2020 Janelle announced her partnership with Microsoft Bing and a nonprofit close to her heart, The Social Justice Learning Institute (SJLI).
Now, Fem The Future has taken its next step by partnering with Bing. Bing is excited to support donations to FTF via Give with Bing. Through the partnership, Fem The Future hopes to build a fem-forward future by creating opportunities for young womxn and girls in music, arts, and education.
Fem The Future aims to provide young womxn and girls with the resources and support they need to overcome the challenges associated with growing up in under-resourced communities of color. FTF expands the world of opportunities by supporting and creating afterschool and summer enrichment activities that increase exposure and access to a variety of careers.
In an effort to impact as many womxn and girls as possible, FTF also provides grant opportunities to organizations that are providing access to arts, music, and leadership development-centric pedagogies to help uphold the important work they are already doing.
