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!
