Intuits Mailchimp Grants $100,000 To Atlanta Based Black Women’s Artist Collective
Atlanta-based tech company Inuit Mailchimp is an email and marketing automation platform for growing businesses.
They aim to empower customers worldwide to start and grow their businesses with world-class marketing technology.
The platform makes data-backed recommendations for businesses automatically and with the help of AI.
In 2021, Mailchimp was acquired by Intuit, an American business software company specializing in financial software.
Recently, Inuit Mailchimp announced a pledge of $1 million to increase and help diverse local arts organizations based in Atlanta.
Each organization will receive an unrestricted grant of $100,000 to contribute to their ongoing initiatives.
“Mailchimp understands the urgency of this situation and recognizes that time is of the essence,” they wrote.
“These grants will enable them to grow their vital work, reinforcing their ability to serve as beacons of creativity and inspiration.”
The Unrestricted Funding
TILA Studios is one of the ten diverse local arts organizations to receive funding from Inuit Mailchimp.
The Black women’s organization told The Atlanta Voice they plan to use its $100,000 unrestricted grant to support many of its programs, especially its award-winning and nationally recognized Garden Fellowship.
This is a 15-month program that helps artists take their careers to the next level.
“We’re not just a creative organization, but we’re also a Black organization, and a creative Black women’s organization at that, so opportunities to receive funding the way that other businesses or organizations do are not as plentiful,” said Tiffany Latrice, executive director of TILA Studios.
“As a local creative organization, getting support from a local tech giant like Inuit Mailchimp means a lot.”
