Empowering the Next Generation

December 1, 2021


Fortress applauds the efforts of Josiah Lindsay, a Managing Director within Fortress’s Credit business, in his ongoing commitment to the development of Stamford’s youth community. As President and Chairman of the Board of The 100 Black Men of Stamford, Josiah helps transform the lives of underserved youth in the Fairfield county region. Founded in 1993, The 100BMOS is a non-profit community action organization that provides programs, activities, and opportunities to inspire and empower youth in the community to make positive societal contributions. Programs around community service, robotics, and athletics are grounded in the organization’s values: respect for family, spirituality, justice, loyalty, honesty, and integrity as key ingredients for achieving success.

The 100BMOS empowers participants to pursue education through programs in college preparedness and financial literacy. Over the past 20 years, Josiah and the 100BMOS have awarded over $250,000 of college scholarships.

The 100BMOS is an affiliate of The 100 Black Men of America, a national organization with over 100 chapters globally that was created to make a difference in the lives of young people.
