Frederick, Md., April 17, 2021—Today, we are proud to announce the launch of a new sponsorship, one that will further our mission of amplifying the future of STEM by providing essential support to Amplify the Future and the Black and Latinx Birders Scholarship. American Bird Conservancy has stepped forward to be our new fiscal sponsor! This sponsorship will make our work to deliver scholarships to Black birders and Brown Birders in STEM, along with new initiatives, sustainable.

“American Bird Conservancy is delighted to assist in the next stage of development of the Black and Latinx Birder’s Scholarship Fund. We will be providing a $10,000 challenge match for donors wishing to support the fund in the short-term, and will be working with Amplify the Future and other partners to seek ways to develop programming to support an even broader range of deserving applicants as we advance.”

We at Amplify the Future, founders of the Black and Latinx Birders Scholarship, through our work and partnerships, aim to amplify and center folx who identify as Black, as Indigenous, and/or as folx of color, and show support for TLGBQ+ identifying folx and communities. As we grow our mission, as we expand our efforts, and as we make connections which nurture our initiatives and spark new ones, we partner with groups who through their missions aim to dismantle the status quo, are committed to being anti-racist, and that support initiatives such as ours.
