Our History

Founded in 2018, 501(C)(3) nonprofit charity, The Zinniah Foundation focused on mobilizing the next generation of beauty and business leaders from marginalized areas in Queens, New York City. With a mission to bridge the gap between traditional theory and the expanding ecosystem of beauty and business applications, the foundation operated within an open, charitable infrastructure.

In 2024, however, the Zinniah Foundation embarked on an expansion journey, collaborating with experts in music and environmentally conscious companies. This strategic partnership aims to enhance the foundation’s mission of unlocking vocational and economic potential among its students while extending support to marginalized communities on a larger scale.

Our Mission

We are committed to empowering young people of marginalized communities by bridging gaps in education, economics, and community advancement. Through the integration of arts, environmental awareness, and career and technical education, we foster growth, and creativity. Our innovative, value-based initiatives cultivate a brighter future for all.

Our Vision

We envision a future where every individual, irrespective of background, has equal access to quality education and economic empowerment.
