Kyle Webb invokes an African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” This idea underpins Webb Family Enterprises’ partnership with IECF to create the Webb Family Fund for Parity.

The Webbs — Reggie and René and their children, Karim, Kiana, and Kyle — have been active philanthropically and as community leaders, tracing to Reggie’s chairmanship of the National Black McDonald’s Operators Association, which negotiated a parity agreement to align the percentage of African American–owned franchises with the percentage of African Americans in the U.S. population. The Webbs believe a similar approach can apply to the Inland Empire, where they live and have operated 16 McDonald’s restaurants.

“We felt that we had to organize the leadership of the African American community around unity and parity and drive the community to improve,” Reggie says.

As Kyle puts it, the family is passionate about “transforming quality-of-life outcomes. We want to strengthen our ties in the community in an authentic way by putting our resources to work here.”

René adds, “We have to share our blessings. When you share your wealth, it grows.”
