In June 2020, Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand announced a $100 million pledge to help the ongoing fight against racial injustice. The basketball legend announced that over the next 10 years, he and his brand will donate $100 million to "organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education."

Now, the Jordan brand is making good on its promise and is linking arms with MORTAR to empower our work of building equitable entrepreneurship in communities across the nation. Let's. Do. This.

"Join Jordan" in making a donation that helps us continue to provide accessible, equitable entrepreneurship training.
(You can give: $23, $230, $2300, $23,000 or any number in between! You can also set up your donation to happen once or make it recurring.)

For many this is the short-lived season of fleeting beauty; cozy sweaters, pumpkin spiced lattes, multicolored leaves lining the street. As we shed summer and prepare for the seasons ahead, we transition with the hope that is associated with fall, the hope of harvest, abundance, festival, and that it all lasts a little bit longer than expected. 

This fall we are joining in the autumnal appreciation here at MORTAR, and we want to welcome ALL the changes--whether they are changes & growth in the cities that our program serves or changes in our schedules to make room for the events we host to love on the community.

Speaking of which, we have a BIG event planned to bring all of us together one good time before it gets COLD-cold.

Save. The. Date. 

Saturday, October 23rd, 1:00pm-Until

Purpose: We want to bring everyone HOME.
Alums, Supporters, Funders, Sponsors, Friends, Expansion City Affiliates... Errybody.

Vibe: HBCU Homecoming/Tailgate

It's Homecoming and we're showing out at our new office location! We've been wanting to show everyone our new digs and throw a great party to thank all of our people - and the time is finally here! We couldn't do any of this without you.

Come and celebrate with us, we've missed you.
More information to follow, but in the meantime, mark your calendar!!

See you on October 23rd! 


In honor of our partnership with the Jordan Brand, we're doing a super special "Stuff We Like" JORDAN EDITION. We asked the MORTAR team to share what their favorite pairs of J's were, and here are a few highlights:
