OUR IMPACT

Our Impact

At Kwanza Jones & José E. Feliciano SUPERCHARGED Initiative (KJSI), we believe in bringing together vision + talent + financial resources to drive beneficial societal change. This belief is core to our investment for impact model and our one bold goal — to power possibilities that boost humanity and its future. It’s why we partner with for-profit businesses and nonprofit organizations who seek to find solutions to humanity’s challenges. Our efforts are focused on creating lasting impact in four key areas: Education, Entrepreneurship, Equity, and Empowerment.

Although not our sole focus, our investing for impact model takes into account diversity and inclusion as well as access to capital for underrepresented groups. That's why KJSI and affiliates have made over $50 million in commitments to diverse/women founders, and over $25 million to educational institutions and empowerment organizations.
