Metro Proponent Foundation, Inc.
Past, Present, and Planned Activities
The Metro Proponent brand has always been, since its creation in 2009, an “in-kind donations” community resource. Main focus creatively emphasizes on the interests of young professionals, entrepreneurs, and minorities of all races. The Metro Proponent brand was built one day at a time
We strive to cultivate entrepreneurship by aiding underrepresented areas. As a trifecta of media, the Metro Proponent (MP) brand is represented in the print, on Charlotte Time Warner Cable television, and online at www.metroproponent.com. The MP provides local, national and international information. We are known for raising awareness on issues that lack visibility.
The Metro Proponent Foundation INC (MPF) is the non-profit entity within the brand. The foundation was formed at the end of 2010 and has worked along with dozens of partnering 501C(3) non-profits and other agencies. Each season MPF donates time and resources to assist in fundraisers, back to school drives, food drives, coat drives, feed the homeless initiatives, sickle cell, breast cancer, gang prevention, and domestic violence awarenessnand various women’s empowerment events.
We host focus groups in our targeted communities and continuously gather input from those we plan to serve. We are currently seeking growth and consider ourselves an active visionary.
