Mentoring for Racial Equity Grant Program

Mentoring for Racial Equity Grant Program

Seeking Organizations Working Toward
a More Equitable Future

We all want to believe that hard work is enough to propel someone, regardless of their demographics or background, to a successful future. Sadly, that is not the world in which we live. Racism is a systemic issue that permeates every aspect of our culture. Without intentional interventions, inequities will remain. What can we, as a mentoring software company, do that would create real and lasting change? We realized we could do what we’ve always strived to do—support impactful mentoring programs via software and services—but specifically for organizations that are working diligently to seek racial equity and justice.

Mentoring enables people to learn from one another, break down barriers and foster skills and knowledge that can propel individuals to future success.

Each year, Chronus will grant one eligible non-profit—with a mission centered around racial equity for Black, Indigenous and/or other communities of color—a three-year contract for Chronus mentoring software and standard services.

This grant program aims to be an ally in the pursuit for racial equity and equality in the world in which we work and live.

The basic, human need to connect has always brought people together, even in times of social and physical distancing. Now more than ever, it’s imperative that organizations work to build systems for connection, kinship and understanding for the people they serve. With the help of mentoring, we believe people can see greater success no matter their challenges or obstacles.

The 2022 application period is now closed. We will announce a grant recipient in November 2022.
