Clarifi, a financial services nonprofit that works to address the racial wealth gap, is one of 25 organizations up for The Renewal Awards.

The grant competition organized by The Atlantic and Allstate aims to recognize local grassroots organizations for the solutions they’ve proposed in their particular communities. Five nominees will take home $20,000, with an additional five runner-ups winning $10,000.

The 25 finalists were picked from nearly 3,000 nominees.

Clarifi’s director of community engagement, Soneyet Muhammad, said the award money would allow the organization to continue to invest in its team of counselors, contribute to civic innovation, address the student loan crisis and holistically make sure low-to-moderate income families have an opportunity to thrive in their respective financial situations.

It would also help Clarifi continue to address the racial wealth gap, which Muhammad wrote about extensively for Generocity here.
