BACE V-Suite

The BACE Black Veterans Career and Entrepreneurship Center for Black military veterans and military spouses is fiscally sponsored by the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago.

We are grateful for all of the generous donations from corporations, foundations and individuals that help sustain our mission of an inter-disciplinary forum advancing racial equity through leadership advocacy, organizational transformation, professional growth, education and data transparency and reporting. The Black Alliance of Colleges and Employers (BACE) is fully funded by these donations and without them, we could not serve our communities.

This nonprofit fiscal sponsorship between Black Alliance of Colleges and Employers (BACE) and YWCA Metropolitan Chicago aligns the pillars of Campus, Career and Research to level economic access and opportunity for Black talent in workspace and higher education with a focus on serving Black Veterans and Military Spouses. This aligns with YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
