Cor Health Logo WEBNew Energy Equity LLC, a solar developer and financier based in Annapolis, MD and founder of the Lift as We Climb Foundation, has extended a donation towards the completion of the William L. Adams Entrepreneurial Institute. The institute, founded by the COR Health Institute, will be a community facility that supports professional and economic development through entrepreneurship education within the Biddle Street Community in Baltimore, MD.

“Through this donation, New Energy Equity will bring the COR Health Institute one step closer to reaching their fundraising goal to provide young people with the training and support to start community-based businesses,” says New Energy Equity President and CEO Matthew Hankey. “We are thrilled to support the COR Health Institute with this great project.”

The Foundation will contribute $12,500 towards the construction costs of the institute.

The William L. Adams Entrepreneurial Institute is an initiative driven by the need for an economic infrastructure within the Biddle Street Community. “The Biddle Street Community has a culture of crime, violence, substance abuse, and poor moral standards “, says Munir Bahar, Executive Director of COR Health Institute. “Our multi-tiered solution includes recycling the presently vacant properties, and converting them into usable, productive, and privately-owned institutions. These institutions offer opportunities for healing, learning, and cultural development. The WAEI will engage local youth and encourage them to set an example of the character traits necessary for personal and professional success.”

The WAEI will consist of two business curriculums including subjects like accounting, taxation, start-up procedures, business law, advertising, branding, fundraising, and more.
