Black Philanthropy Month 2015 is a multimedia campaign to inform, inspire and invest in Black philanthropic leadership. Entering its fifth year of observance, it is part of an unprecedented coordinated initiative to strengthen African-American and African-descent giving in all its forms. High-impact events, media stories, service projects and giving opportunities compose the annual campaign, which kicked off August 1st.
Founded by the Pan African Women’s Philanthropy Network and proclaimed by the United Nations and Congress in August 2011, Black Philanthropy Month was created as an annual, global celebration of African-descent giving in the United States and worldwide.
Please join the celebration by sharing how you plan to give back during the month by using the hashtag #BPM2015 and visit http://www.blackphilanthropymonth.com for more ways to get involved!
