Serena Williams Gives Back Following her Exit from Australian Open

Tennis icon and business-owner Serena Williams has pledged her support for the Opportunity Fund by committing to donate a portion of the proceeds from her Serena Williams Jewelry Unstoppable collection to benefit its Small Business Relief Fund — which directly supports Black small-business owners.

A press release reports that Williams will continue this commitment through the month of February.

“This February, we’re honoring Black History Month by donating a portion of proceeds from every purchase to Opportunity Fund’s Small Business Relief Fund that provides support directly to Black small-business owners,” an Instagram caption reads.

Since 1994, the Fund has deployed more than $1 billion and helped thousands of entrepreneurs invest in their families’ futures, a press release shares.

In addition to showing her support for the Opprtunity Fund, Williams is also using her presence on Instagram to pay homage to Black women who’ve made history in honor of Black History Month.
