Our mission is to provide a platform to inspire, encourage, and spread knowledge about mental health wellness.
The Pinkney Promise Foundation was incorporated in the District of Columbia as a nonprofit organization on April 23, 2017 and rewarded its 501c3 tax exempt status the following month. Our mission is to provide a platform to inspire, encourage and spread knowledge about mental health wellness within the African American community. Our platform targets mental health wellness, healthy coping mechanisms, and spiritual alignment by creating events, workshops and community service projects for teens and young adults.
After experiencing her own shares of depression in 2015 Breyonna Pinkney founded the Pinkney Promise Foundation. The Pinkney Promise Team expanded quickly as likeminded individuals joined together to fight this expanding cause. Studies show that 1/10 adults experience major depression and approximately 800,000 African American women are experiencing depression or anxiety each year.
The Pinkney Promise Foundation creates healthy environments for young adults to support one another throughout this
journey to healing.
