Make A Donation!Over the years,
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Business Empowerment Center (MLKJ-BEC) has been able to exist because of
support from so many generous individuals, companies, and foundations. On behalf of our Board of
Directors, staff, and constituency, we thank you. Like people running for political office, we hate
to ask for money, but without your support, we cannot continue to provide the free services,
fundraising is "a necessary evil." Without economic development in the form of new businesses, jobs
and the exchange of dollars for services, Worcester is not a "city on the move."
Over the last 14
years, MLKJ-BEC continually has had a multi-million dollar impact, of determined by an independent
economic analysis $17 million annually in Worcester County alone. In 2007, we maintained that same
level of impact.
If you think what we do is of importance to our community, please consider
assisting us. A tax-deductible donation will go a long way towards assisting motivated individuals
to successfully pursue their dreams of a better quality of life in our "All American City"
