Our Pledge

A portion of the net profits at Conscious Customers is donated to non-profit organizations working to dismantle systemic racism and support the advancement of diverse entrepreneurs and companies including the Foundation for Business Equity, Amplify Latinx and the Black Economic Council of Massachusetts.

The mission of the Black Economic Council of Massachusetts, Inc. (BECMA) is to advance the economic well-being of Black businesses, organizations that serve the Black community and Black residents of Massachusetts.

The Foundation for Business Equity was created to help address the widening income and wealth gap in Greater Boston, experienced most acutely by Black and Latinx communities. It focuses on scaling businesses of color and creating more jobs with family-sustaining wages.

Amplify Latinx is a non-partisan, collaborative movement whose mission is to build Latinx economic and political power by significantly increasing Latinx civic engagement, economic opportunity and representation in leadership positions across sectors.
