Executives for Black Excellence Initiative

Inspired by the mission of The Center, Dane County business leaders formed the Executives for Black Excellence Initiative to leverage their personal resources and community connections to support the success of The Center’s Capital Campaign. 

The initiative has already raised $1 million. Join the quickly growing list of executives investing their time and resources in The Center by emailing [email protected].

As members of the Executives for Black Excellence Initiative, we’re challenging others in the business community to personally step up behind the leadership of the Black community and leverage our financial resources to support their vision”
