Raising Startup Funds for The Give Black Foundation, Inc.
Fri, June 30, 2017, 7:00 PM – 11:30 PM EDT
Welcome to 2017 and a new Season!
You may already know that for the last 6 years, I have been strategically giving back to those who are less fortunate through my annual birthday parties. It happened after my first trip to Ghana and I saw the need to do more than I was already doing, and fell in love with the children there.
In 2016, I decided to complete an Executive Management Certficate Program at Georgetown University to ensure that I had the proper tools (on paper) to legitimize my own nonprofit. You see, after working as a director for a DC nonprofit for close to a decade, and prior to that working for around 15 years in the private sector, I KNOW what I want my future to look like. The Give Black Foundation, Inc. received nonprofit papers and certification in 2016 and I am ready to roll into 2017 with renewed purpose.
I have been giving back since I was a very little girl and now that I have grown and experienced so much, and have been blessed, I intend to spend the next at least half of my life giving back to bLacks in the African diaspora with purpose.
Please join me on this journey by making a donation to support the startup of this business. Please share the great things you know about me and my works with others so they too can support. Please understand that I am trying to raise at least $10,000 by June 30, 2017 in startup funding so every $ counts. All donations are tax deductible so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are thankful for those who shares their evening with us on March 25. We raised $470 at the event but still have a long way to go.
