BPM 2017& NMAAHC: Freedmen's Bureau Project

Dear Friends,
I created Black Philanthropy Month (BPM) years ago as chair of the Pan-African Women's Philanthropy Network (PAWPNet) to share our #GivingHistory and create a better future for our communities everywhere.
PAWPNet is honored to kickoff the BPM2017 in an historic partnership with the Smithsonian's National Museum of African-American History and Culture's (NMAAHC) Freedman's Bureau Transcription Project.  
Working with NMAAHC, PAWPNet is mobilizing its entire national and global network to use the Project's easy online tools to transcribe at least one slave story.
Philanthropy is about giving not just money but time to shape our future.  
You can start by joining a NMAAHC online Transcribe-a-Thon tomorrow, May 5th from 10 AM to 3 PM Eastern Time where you will join thousands to help write the history of black people in America.
Also, PAWPNet will be offering trainings with the Freedman's Bureau Project in the coming months to build the Movement.  This is a perfect way to give back for Black Philanthropy Month and beyond.  Please register and even make this an initiative for any individuals, associations, churches or any other group that cares about black, American or African history.  Just use  this flyer to engage your network.
Together, we make our history and our future. Thank you for #GivingHistory for BPM2017. Keep posted for other announcements and ways to support compelling initiatives that make a real difference for generations.
In faith and solidarity,
Jackie Copeland-Carson, PhD
Chair, Pan-African Women's Philanthropy Network
Founder, Black Philanthropy Month
