of all things to give
among the most cherished gifts
is simply a chance

We not only alter the lens on philanthropy, we also amplify Black voices in a myriad of ways. Here’s a link to the latest Giving Back Project (GBP) e-blast, with highlights, pics and video on our new touring exhibit: Watch Us Amplify The Soul of Philanthropy
Almost three years ago, we produced our first GBP video [ philanthropy reframed ] to alter and amplify voices, views and vibes. Happy to see that video surpass 3000 views this week!
GBP is based on the premise that the people comprising our communities and philanthropic institutions would benefit, immensely, by changing the scope of how we all see ourselves and by listening to understand, more often and far better.
“I have decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
Remembering that Dr. King was assassinated April 4, 1968 and striving to sustain his legacy 47 years later through our work on Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited.

Two weeks ago we opened Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited in Charlotte at Johnson C. Smith University. For me, the day felt like a dream sequence. Check out these photos and recap via this link.
PHILANTHROPY simply means: love of what it means to be human.
