Comcast Grants $650,000 to Native Women Lead’s Matriarch Revolutionary Fund

Comcast NBCUniversal ranked No. 7 on The Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.


Comcast announced a $650,000 commitment to Native Women Lead (NWL), supporting its Matriarch Revolutionary Fund.

The Matriarch Revolutionary Fund is the first impact investment fund in the U.S. focused on supporting Native women-owned businesses. Comcast is the first — and largest — corporate partner of the fund.

I want to see our entrepreneurs thrive — that has been the magic of Native Women Lead. Being able to see someone succeed closes that belief gap in oneself and empowers one another to continue to push and take this journey of entrepreneurship with that curiosity, with that awe, with that wonder, and to be open to the challenges of business ownership,” said Jaime Gloshay, Co-Founder of NWL.

With support from Comcast, NWL is closer to its goal of building a $10 million fund to help empower 200 Native women-owned businesses at $50,000 – $250,000 each.

The grant will also support NWL’s network of over 20,000 Indigenous women across North America to grow their businesses, communities and environment with values-aligned integrated capital.

“We are proud to partner with Native Women Lead to help empower these talented, innovative business owners realize overdue economic opportunities for themselves and their community,” said Dalila Wilson-Scott, EVP and Chief Diversity Officer of Comcast Corporation and President of the Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation.
