Study the past if you would define the future.
Today’s the first day of Black History Month. In the United States, we have 400 years of the documented history of Black Americans to study and learn from. As a giving circle, New Generation of African American Philanthropists engages in philanthropy to shape and define the future.
To that end, tomorrow, NGAAP Charlotte is holding its 2019 Winter Advance. We advance, because social change warriors never retreat! During our daylong session of research and planning, circle members will review data from a recent study of giving circles, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. We will discuss and explore possibilities for how our giving circle can affect social change in Charlotte. And we’ll exit the Advance with clarity and plans for our grant-making and civic engagement.
We’re already off to a strong start in 2019; here are some recent and upcoming happenings we’re engaging in and support:
- ‘Next Gen Social Justice Journeys’ Panel, National Summit on Family Philanthropy (01.28.2019)
- Winter Advance on NGAAP’s Collective Moves, Minds & Money (02.02.2019)
- Grant Writing Basics Workshop, African American Community Foundation (02.06.2019)
