NEW YORK, June 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Dreyfus, BNY Mellon's affiliated liquidity manager, today announced the launch of BOLD® Future, a new share class for retail investors of the Dreyfus Government Cash Management fund. Building on the demand from institutional investors for BOLD, which stands for Black Opportunity for Learning and Development, BOLD Future will support Howard University's Graduation, Retention, and Access to Continued Excellence (GRACE) Grant by making an annual donation of 10% of the net revenue1 of the share class to a dedicated scholarship within the GRACE Grant.
