Much of 2015 focused on rolling out the IMLS-funded exhibit The Soul of Philanthropy with JCSU and strategizing about our work in 2016 (our 10th year!) and the next decade of our giving circle. Below are photos from 2015, and here’s a quick recap of 2015 (not everything, but most):

All this, plus other countless philanthropic deeds and initiatives of respective members…including the addition of at least a half dozen new members.

Our decennial holds potential to be our biggest, boldest celebration AND demonstration of the power of Black giving! We invite you to join us in a year of conscious giving for social change.
