The Walker Fund is designed to take steps toward financial health by offering an opportunity for support and
reprieve in a respectful and thoughtful manner. The goals and propositions of the initiative are few and pointed. They are as follows:
Program requirements, eligibility and expectations for financial assistance have been too restrictive to be helpful to poor people. It is easy for poor Black people, in particular, to be caught in debt traps. Often programs that have the intention of helping facilitate harsh, short-sighted, and racist limitations on the scope of the microgrants meant to help people with real problems (in the rare instances they are available to individuals).
Though the requirements for the Walker Fund aren’t a free for all, they are less stringent than formal banking institutions might offer. This flexibility is an attempt to create conditions to help people out of a financial rut.
