The Loveland Foundation (Q3-4, 2020)
The Loveland Foundation provides opportunity, access, validation and healing to communities of color, especially Black women and girls. Founded in 2018 by activist and educator Rachel Cargle, the foundation provides financial support to Black women and girls seeking therapy and mental health support. Through fellowships, residency programs, listening tours, and more, they aim to help empower and liberate the communities they serve.
In the U.S., it it often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when needed. Individual sessions typically cost between $60 - $250, even with insurance, and the stigma surrounding mental health is prevalent in many communities. With the barriers affecting access to treatment by members of diverse ethnic and racial groups, the Loveland Therapy Fund provides financial assistance to Black women and girls nationally seeking therapy.
5% of all retails sales made July 1 through December 31, 2020 were donated to The Loveland Foundation.
