We are capable of creating things beyond imagination. We’ve done so time and time again, despite the odds stacked against us. While our resilience has been one of our greatest strengths, the MPWR Foundation seeks to explore and answer the question: what does Black creativity and artistry look like beyond unnecessary struggle? We exist to nurture environments where the historically excluded can feel safe, seen, heard, and supported with resources to grow and thrive. Our mission is to empower our communities — in strategic and impactful ways — so we have more chances to dream, imagine, and build a more equitable future.
The Kenneth D. Wiggins G.NIUS Grant™ is designed to assist Black creative and/or tech-focused entrepreneurs with products, services, or solutions designed to positively impact Black communities.
