Short Term: Sponsorship Opportunities

A Cup of Tea with a Black Woman is on a mission to empower Black American youth, improve communities, and address historical challenges. We can't do it alone – it takes everyone working together to create lasting change. Your support can make a significant impact on our initiatives, and we want to show you where your dollars will go.

Project 1: Mobile "Tea" Truck for Community Building

We understand that establishing a community center cannot be an immediate goal due to structural and financial barriers. Instead, we're taking a mobile approach to deliver services directly to historically Black communities impacted by social determinants of health. Our mobile "tea" trucks will provide:

  • Weekly meals with healthy drink options

  • Resources in the pillars of Personal Advancement, Financial Wellness, Health Education, and S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math)

  • Learning spaces for students

Estimated Costs:

  • Mobile food truck with a learning space and activity space.

  • Building a library of Black history books for community giveaways and resources 

  • Operational costs for one truck (permits, licensing, insurance, equipment, staffing, etc.)

Project 2: Culturally Appropriate Financial Wellness Workbooks & Journals

In the long term, we aim to provide various learning resources for Black American students, including games, movies, workshops, and more. In the short term, we want to equip students with financial literacy and wellness habits through workbooks, hands-on experiences, games, books, and journals.

Additional Needs:

  • Hiring learning specialists and curriculum developers/industry leaders

  • Publishing and printing of workbooks and journals, including acquistion of exisiting resources.

Your sponsorship will help us create a culturally appropriate financial wellness curriculum and educational resources for K-12 students, empowering them to make informed financial decisions and build a brighter future.

We are grateful for any support you can provide. Together, we can make a meaningful impact on the lives of Black American youth and communities.
