Founded by Allen Thornton, CEO of Money For Your Mission Inc., the vision of 40 Acre Conference is to start a foundation which will serve as the catalyst for a billion dollar minority revenue generating holiday #MLKBlackMonday (Black Friday 10 billion).         

The name “40 Acre Conference” was created as a reminder to corporations to align with their 200+ billion dollar commitments to the Black community.

Mr. Thornton states ”We are here to partner, not to ask for anything free!” We have created effective ways to align with brands to distribute commitments, so that money and resources don’t disappear like 40 acres and a mule did”.

If a global community can partner to deliver a great show where corporations can achieve brand alignment that makes sense for them in the minority market and receive ROI in conjunction with making an impact it’s a Win-Win. Money gets disbursed into the black and minority community and fuels that economy. The black community benefits from the financial uplift and needed exposure along with continued education for this current generation as well as the next. This movement of radical collaboration, intentional partnerships and effective group economics is created during the conference between corporations, attendees, vendors, sponsors, celebrities and influencers, decreasing the wealth gap.

Proud sponsors of 40 Acre Conference include Pepsi, VIPsocio, City of Houston, Jordan, Code Wiz Oak Forest, Houston First, Mathnasium, Mcdonalds, Goya, East River Golf Course, Code Launch, Bumpboxx, The Gent Spot Barbershop, Hip Hop Streets and The Rockets. The primary and previous host partner Post Houston, formerly Houston’s hub for US Mail is a vibrant center for culture, food and recreation boasting beautiful workspaces and eye-catching art. Golf Tournament host East River 9, located within a mile of downtown is the only 9-hole, 3-par course inside the 610 loop complete with an onsite restaurant and VIP Lounge.
