Blacks United In Liberating Dollars
INITIATIVE


As an organization that has committed itself to refusing corporate and government funding, we are faced with a unique challenge to secure the financial resources needed to start and implement the many noble endeavors we seek to establish. We must find innovative ways to amass large amounts of capital through individual contributions from the communities we serve.

The Blacks United In Liberating Dollars (BUILD) Initiative is one of those innovative ways. The purpose of our BUILD fundraising initiative is to secure financial contributions from Detroit residents and New Era Detroit supporters to fund N.E.D. programs.

We have created a blueprint for a massive fundraising initiative that, if implemented according to its design, will bring in millions of dollars to the organization within 12 months. All funds from this program will directly go towards supporting and funding the many and various programs N.E.D. has.

With this program, there are tiers, separated by the amount and value of your monthly gift. There is a group of tiers specifically for individuals who would like to support us and another group for businesses that would like to support us. These tiers come with different incentives (our way of saying "Thank You for supporting us"). Each tier builds upon the preceding tier, either by adding content or replacing an incentive with another that has more value.
