Information shared at Juneteenth Gospel Brunch

The Unity Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation is a community-led effort to build, strengthen and create opportunities for advancement in African Heritage communities through action, engagement and education.

The Unity Fund serves as a catalyst to remove social and racial barriers to African American communities’ opportunity to participate fully in, and contribute to, the social and economic life of Duluth, Superior and the Iron Range. 

The Unity Fund was created by the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation and the Ordean Foundations.

Unity Fund Priority Areas Include:

  • Economic and social stability through home ownership
  • Development of local emerging and innovative businesses
    Preservation of African Heritage contributions to the region, past and present
  • Eliminate health disparities through access and education
  • Career development and educational support for traditional and non-traditional students


A stronger, more equitable community grows economic vitality and opportunities for everyone. Your
contribution supports opportunities for African Heritage families to grow and prosper across the
Northland.
