“The most persistent and penetrating problem facing Black America is the wealth gap. The lack of financial capacity among Black families impacts education, health care, housing and all other quality of life issues.”
DeForest B. Soaries, Jr., Founder & Chair, Dfree Global Foundation Inc.
According to a report by Prosperity Now, Black Americans are projected to have a median net
worth of ZERO by 2053! The Dfree Global Foundation, Inc. is on a mission to change this by
addressing the psychological, social, emotional, and cultural issues that drive financial choices
Our Training + Engagement Team supports leaders, teams, and organizations globally to implement the dfree® Lifestyle programming. As one of our fastest-growing segments, our team provides training, programming, tools, curriculum, and tailored launch and measurement plans supporting our global leaders and partners.
The BDC platform provides 11,000+ people with interactive tools and calculators to pay down
debts, build savings, and change behaviors that affect their financial health. This year, we have new site enhancements and resources to help even more people pay off their debt! Our goal is to pay off $1 billion in consumer debt. So far, more than $36 million has been paid off.

2021 brought the launch of our new online learning platform, the dfree® Online Academy. We welcomed 4000+ users in the first year. 2022 brings e-learning course updates, new courses, instructor-led cohorts, and expert masterclass courses to continue offering our curriculum to individuals and leaders worldwide.
With a portion of our team based in Ghana, we are at the forefront of developing educational and economic opportunities. We have partnered with local organizations to deliver financial education, host annual tours, and build facilities for children, including a library. Dfree Africa is an economic empowerment connection across the diaspora with life-changing impacts! For example, our team is working on economic projects such as a mobile app helping low-income businesswomen, building an elementary school, and connecting with new dfree® Lifestyle curriculum partners.
We invite you to give at the level most appropriate for your circumstances. Here’s a snapshot of how your contributions help.
