$9,000 Goal







Black Millennials 4 Flint (BM4F) has a commitment to the children and families in Flint, Michigan. We have adopted the following schools: Brownell STEM Academy, Eagle's Nest Academy & Holmes STEM Academy--all located on Flint's Northside.  The Flint Water Crisis and now COVID-19 has a substantial impact on our most vulnerable children.  We uphold the Kwanzaa Principal "Ujima" collective work and responsibility with the belief that every child in Flint is a part of our village...#AllNeighbors. 

Due to the economic decline with COVID-19, The State of Michigan slashed the education budget, leaving already underfunded and under-resourced schools in jeopardy. 

OUR GOAL IS $9,000--$3,000 FOR EACH SCHOOL

With a donation of $20, $50, $100 or more, you can support our adopted schools with resources such as (but not limited to):

  1. Digital Learning Software and Workbooks
  2. Digital Device Management and Upkeep
  3. Emergency Family Assistance (e.g. water and utility assistance)
  4.  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  5. Home-based science experiment kits
