TCF was an early partner of Community Investment Network (where I now serve as interim Executive Director) when it was formed a decade ago. CIN is celebrating its 10th anniversary conference in Durham in October and TCF is a sponsor.
Many thanks to Lori O’Keefe and Veronica Hemmingway of TCF (@TriComFdn) and Todd Cohen of Philanthropy North Carolina (@philanthropync).
Though not a public official, I’ll seize the occasion to call upon ALL public officials; givers of the luminary and everyday variety; professionals and volunteers from the philanthropic and nonprofit realm; faith-based congregants; the young and the forever young-hearted; and all the people of Charlotte and beyond:
To observe this month,
To celebrate the cultural richness and philanthropic spirit of our community, and
To recognize the vital role generosity plays in ensuring a healthy, safe and prosperous community in which to live, work and flourish.
Black Philanthropy Month. August…and giving augustly, year-round!
