I’ve shared a lot of information this week about crowdfunding and taxation, for both recipients and givers. If you are looking to for a way to honor Juneteenth, you can support POC-owned businesses in Minneapolis by contributing to the Du Nord Recovery Fund.
Du Nord Craft Spirits is a Black-owned Minneapolis business that is using its popularity to raise funds to rebuild smaller POC-owned businesses that were affected by the uprising for human rights in the wake of the police murder of George Floyd on Memorial Day.
Independent funds like the one being collected by Du Nord are vital, despite the existence of larger official funds like the $6 million+ raised by the Lake Street Council. A more diverse funding base may mean a more diverse recovery.
