He has also secured the Better Business Bureau nonprofit certification, which has established the National Urban League as a leading national nonprofit organization.

Morial's creativity has led to initiatives such as the Urban Youth Empowerment Program, which assists young adults in securing sustainable jobs, and Entrepreneurship Centers in five cities to help the growth of small businesses.

Morial also created the National Urban League Empowerment Fund, which has pumped almost $200 million into urban impact businesses, including minority business through debt and equity investments.
