Description

Join POISE Foundation as we host an evening of conversation and celebration in honor of Black Philanthropy Month.


BPM 2019 logo




Black Philanthropy Month (BPM) was created in August 2011 by Dr. Jackie Copeland-Carson and the Pan-African Women's Philanthropy Network (PAWPNet) as an annual, global celebration of African-descent giving. Learn more about BPM HERE.

This year's theme is: Let's Make History.

POISE has invited a diverse panel and expects a lively discussion about Black philanthropy. Panelists include Valaida Fullwood, BPM co-architect, author and creator of the national exhibit Giving Back:The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited. Ms. Fullwood will be joined by local philanthropists who will lead the conversation about how we use philanthropy as a way to build and support our communities. We invite you to join us for the conversation & networking! Hors d'oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available.

Space is limited, an RSVP is required. Only 1 ticket is available per registration. Each person attending must register separately.

This event may be recorded. Your voice and/or likeness could be captured and may be used by the Event Host and Partners for future events.
