Giving Black Day 2019!
Why Giving Black Day:
Giving Black Day marks the conclusion of Black Philanthropy Month, a celebration of African-descent giving held annually in August and founded in 2011 by Dr. Jackie Bouvier Copeland and the Pan-African Women's Philanthropy Network (PAWPNet). Young, Black, And Giving Back Institute (YBGB) shares in the mission of promoting philanthropy within the black community, and Giving Black Day builds on the momentum created by Black Philanthropy Month with one concentrated day for giving.
Terms of Participation:
A Philanthropic Partnership For Black Communities (ABFE) defines Black-led social change as those organizations with a predominantly Black board and executive leadership, staff leadership and constituents — if relevant — and whose primary organizational purpose is to work to build the political, economic and/or social power of the Black community. So, “Black-led” is about the demographic makeup and racial identity of the leadership as well as a political purpose of building power to ensure that the Black community thrives.
To participate in Giving Black Day, we require that at least 50% of the leadership, board AND staff are Black, thereby accurately reflecting the population you serve.
