Proud to be a part of New Generation of African American Philanthropists and to lead the collaboration that created #CLTGivesBlack, part of our community’s monthlong celebration of Black Philanthropy Month and a jumpstart to a new future of funding equity in the Queen City.
Our key partners for nearly a year have been My Brother’s Keeper of Charlotte-Mecklenburg, National PanHellenic Council-Charlotte Chapter, SHARE Charlotte and YMCA of Greater Charlotte. In addition, roughly 40 Charlotte-based corporations, banks, professional sports teams, foundation and media outlets joined as Promotional Partners.
We are urging people all day to give to one or more Black-led, Black-philanthropy nonprofits, whether with small dollars and major financial gifts. But not to stop there! We want everyone to establish a connection today and find ways to continue the support, through volunteering, sharing your knowledge and network, and donating with re-occurring contributions.
Black-led nonprofits, the backbone of our communities, are often well-recognized beacons of hope and opportunity, delivering critical services, offering training, and giving voice to those frequently unseen and unheard.
Want to learn more about the 100s of local Black-led, Black-benefitting nonprofits? Visit sharecharlotte.org, where you can search online and discover matches for your interests and investments of time, talent and treasure. The African American Community Foundation and New Generation of African American Philanthropists are additional resources for information, involvement and insight.
