The mission of the Juneteenth Fund is to empower individuals, organizations and companies to support education, awareness and charitable causes that promote freedom, equity and safety in our communities.
The Clayco Foundation is a non-profit entity that supports multiple charitable organizations in the communities where Clayco is actively engaged in business. Its focus is to genuinely leave a positive impact on our world. The Clayco Foundation formed the Juneteenth Program and advisory committee to assist the foundation in its solicitation and investment in education, awareness, and causes related to promoting anti-racism.
About our program
Prior to the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020, many were unfamiliar with the significance and celebration of Juneteenth. June 19 commemorates the day in 1865 when enslaved African Americans in Galveston, Texas learned they were free from slavery. Although the Emancipation Proclamation was signed in 1863, many African Americans were still enslaved in some states. Today, Juneteenth remains a celebration of freedom and hope.
