State of the HeART Philanthropy

NGAAP Group - 4

State of the HeART Philanthropy | New Generation of African American Philanthropists

September 1 opens the door to another year of Black giving in all its forms. Let’s keep giving augustly, and celebrate together again next August!

In substance and in symbolism, The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited represents our giving circle’s gifts of time, talent and treasure. It is part of our civic leadership in reframing portraits of philanthropy. Through the power of art and culture, the exhibit is designed as a call to action toward a movement of conscious giving for social change.

On September 5, the Pop-Up, Abridged Edition of “The Soul of Philanthropy” exhibit opens to the public at Charlotte’s Levine Museum of the New South. It will run through February 2016—Black History Month. Visit and you will see the exhibition celebrates our stories, which span the Old South and the New South. Our circle’s work is also shaping The South of the Future, because we recognize that Black giving matters.

Come to see philanthropy differently.
