TriNet Announces Donation to NAACP Supporting Black Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

DUBLIN, Calif.Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — TriNet (NYSE: TNET), a leading provider of comprehensive human resources solutions for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs), today announced that NAACP Empowerment Programs, a nonprofit division within the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization, is the latest recipient of a TriNet Foundation donation by way of the NAACP Powershift Grants from Daymond John’s Black Entrepreneurs Day event.

 

Launched in 2021, the TriNet Foundation is a donor-advised fund of TriNet and a key component of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. NAACP Empowerment Programs focus on empowering communities of color, with special attention to a number of areas that help Black entrepreneurs, including advocating for economic policies to assist Black entrepreneurs and workers.

 

“We are proud to support the work that NAACP is doing to help empower emerging and established Black entrepreneurs and communities of color,” said Samantha Wellington, TriNet’s Executive Vice President of Business Affairs, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary. “This partnership aligns with TriNet Foundation’s philanthropic vision of improving humanity through creating, expanding and amplifying volunteerism and giving efforts to organizations that are dedicated to fostering positive change, economic development and the growth of entrepreneurism.”

“The NAACP is thrilled to partner with TriNet for Black Entrepreneurs Day, aiming to broaden opportunities for Black entrepreneurs nationwide. Through our grants, we are providing the support and resources necessary to enable Black enterprises to not only thrive but also drive positive change in their respective sectors,” said Yumeka Rushing, NAACP Chief Strategy Officer. “This partnership underscores the importance of supporting Black communities through investment as we shape a brighter future for all. The NAACP remains committed to fostering economic growth and sustainability for Black communities. This is what advocacy in action looks like.”

TriNet is also a partner in the upcoming Black Entrepreneurs Day, the award-winning celebration of Black business aiming to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs, curated by Daymond John. Returning for its fourth year the event will take place at the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem where Wellington will speak with Daymond John, the founder and CEO of FUBU and Co-Star of ABC’s Shark Tank, about TriNet’s commitment to SMBs, its programs that support entrepreneurial experiences, and the ways in which it is spotlighting diverse communities. Portions of TriNet’s grant to the NAACP will fund multiple NAACP Powershift Grants intended to support Black entrepreneurs and small business owners seeking financial support to build their business. The event will stream for free across the Black Entrepreneurs Day Website, YouTube, Facebook, and more on Wednesday, November 1 at 7pm ET.
