Supporting Pan-African Communities Everywhere!

Your support of Black Philanthropy Month 2016 comes at an important time. Entering its sixth year of observance, Black Philanthropy Month (BPM 2016) is part of an unprecedented coordinated effort to strengthen African-American and African-descent giving in all its forms.  

Thank you for being a part of this work. In our second year of sponsorships, organizations from last year have sustained their support and the total number of sponsors has nearly tripled. Further, this year we are pleased to announce BPM Campaign Partners: The California Wellness Foundation, The California Endowment and The Give Black Foundation.

As you prepare for observances of BPM 2016, this announcement is meant to support you and your organizations. Please access and use the following items as you see fit:

Described here are a few happenings—online and in communities—during August:

Plans for BPM 2016 celebrations throughout August are already underway. In Oregon, MRG Foundation is mounting pop-up exhibitions of “The Soul of Philanthropy” with programs in Portland and Eugene. United Way of Central Carolinas announced a series of “Giving Back” panel discussions with corporate partners in Charlotte, North Carolina. Pan African Women’s Philanthropy Network is organizing “New Black Voices” health forums across California. In the Washington, DC region, members of Black Benefactors giving circle are hosting community conversations to deepen knowledge on social issues. These and other observances will be profiled on, along with a comprehensive events calendar. (Media Release excerpt)

You are welcome to contact us with your ideas, questions, and news.
