The BLAST Scholarship, building Leaders A Semester at a Time. The BLAST scholarship (4 scholarships valued at $250 each) is for African American student leaders in need of financial support. We have donated to the blast scholarship, helping new and thriving college students succeed.
Liberty Bank Building
We donated to the Liberty Bank Building. The redevelopment of the Liberty Bank Building helps preserve affordability in the neighborhood by bringing 115 units of much-needed affordable housing. The project partners honored the legacy of Liberty Bank not only in design but also by creating affordable space for local businesses and fostering a community for residents in the neighborhood. From construction to design, to ongoing use and ownership of the building, the Liberty Bank Building sets a standard for what community-led development can look like.
