Proclaimed!

The Honorable Daniel Clodfelter, Mayor of Charlotte, has proclaimed August 2014 as Black Philanthropy Month!

At Tuesday’s BPM 2014 :: Forum For Civic Leadership, City Councilman David Howard opened the event by reading the City of Charlotte’s proclamation. And I’m proud to share it with you. If the version below proves illegible, you can also access it via this link: City of Charlotte BPM Proclamation.

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.
