Join The Black Benefactors and the Black Philanthropic Alliance for a Celebration of Black Philanthropy!

 

Event flyer 

The Black Benefactors, a giving circle comprised of dedicated everyday people and businesses in the Washington, DC area is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year along with the 10th anniversary of the Black Philanthropic Alliance (BPA).  Join us as we celebrate the season of giving and our anniversary milestones on Thursday, December 6th from 6 to 9pm at the historic Thurgood Marshall Center in Washington, DC.

 

We invite you to learn more about the grantmaking intiatives of The Black Benefactors, a philanthropic giving circle that provides grants and in-kind support to organizations that serve the African American community in the Washington, DC region.  Since our inception in 2007, we have granted nearly $12,000 to six organizations that provide services of mentoring, youth development, arts, and workforce and college readiness. We were proud to be featured in Ebony magazine for our work in the August 2011 ‘Black Wealth’ issue. 

 

The Black Philanthropic Alliance (BPA) is a Washington, DC based philanthropic affinity group, and is the first local membership organization of its kind for Black professionals working in or supporting philanthropy in the greater DC region.  BPA's mission is to increase the presence and leadership of Black professionals in philanthropy and to increase Black participation, giving and leadership through the nonprofit sector.  BPA is a sponsored fund at the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region. 

 

Meet the members of The Black Benefactors and the Black Philanthropic Alliance to learn more about how you can get involved.  Can't make the event but would like to support our efforts?  Please consider making a donation!  We are a small but growing group of everyday people who want to use our anniversary celebration to spread the word about what we do, and to let people know that you do not have to be a millionaire to make a difference.  

 

We'd like to thank the following for their support:
