OUR IMPACT

IMPACT REPORT

FY2021

See below for how we have helped Harlem and the surrounding communities:

ENTREPRENEURIAL IMPACT

We invest with rigor in local businesses especially those owned by women and people of color in the Harlem community by providing access to capital, skills and markets

EDUCATIONAL IMPACT

We believe we need to invest in the future of Harlem and that responsibility extends to our youth and the residents of Harlem

"As we enter our 55th year serving Harlem and surrounding communities, we are proud of the continued contribution of Harlem Commonwealth Council (HCC) and its subsidiary Harlem Entrepreneurial Fund (HEF) to the economic empowerment of individuals and small businesses through education, capital access and business development resources...Since our formation we have strived for economic empowerment for our clients, and by extension our communities, through education and access to capital to create and retain jobs. This will remain our unyielding focus; hopefully for another 55 years."
