Reunity™: Pan-African Women's Giving Since 2001

Reunity™ works to strengthen the capacity of Pan-African women to improve the future of their communities, families and children.

Reunity™ Highlights

The Black Giving and Beyond Summit Series of August 1, 4, 5 with Reunity on August 29, was a great success!

Entering its 10th year, 2020 was the most impactful BPM ever.   We had over 2000 registrants for BPM events from 60 countries; 1 million people engaged online; with 60 topline speakers and over 30 hours of programming.  With events organized from a base in both the US and Africa, as well as publicists and community leaders boosting the convenings throughout the continent and Black Diaspora, this was a truly global phenomenon. 

Our novel online platform created a futuristic, global Black community space for innovation, networking and community building, setting new standards in the field.  Please click here for a preliminary evaluation and be sure to visit to access the presentations.



PAWPNet is now....Reunity™: Pan-African Women's Giving Since 2001

Reunity™ is the new name of the Pan-African Women’s Philanthropy Network (PAWPNet).

PAWPNet was founded by Jackie Copeland in 2001 as a diverse community of African, African-American, and Black Diaspora women funders and leaders from throughout the world, unified in our identity as proud Afro-descendant women working for the betterment of our families and communities everywhere. Emboldened by PAWPNet’s encouraging leadership and her decades of work supporting Black philanthropists globally, Dr. Copeland was inspired to create Black Philanthropy Month (BPM) in 2011, a global celebration of Black Giving in all its forms and call for funding equity held each August and recognized by the UN’s International Year and Decade for People of African Descent. 

PAWPNet organized its first summits in 2003, another in 2006 and is responsible for the seminal 2011 summit that was the first celebration of BPM. Now a program of The Women Invested to Save Earth (WISE) Fund, Reunity™ is the first global Black Diaspora Philanthropy Organization and has 400 members from more than 30 countries. It is a peer advisor, information clearinghouse, referral sources, constituency and convener to increase the visibility and impact of African-descent women's leadership and giving.
