BLACK PHILANTHROPY MONTH

August is Black Philanthropy Month, and we are excited to offer initiatives to support and strengthen our work across  alumni networks, campuses, cities, and universities.  Many black alumni associations have collaborated to create the Philanthropy Support Packet, which contains templates, tools, and resources than can be easily adapted.  

webinars in august

 We'll have two webinars (Fundraising for Annual Fund, Major Gifts, and Endowed Funds on Tuesday, August 13 and Giving Circles at our Black Alumni Associations and Groups on Tuesday, August 20).  Please  be sure to RSVP for these courses, and feel free to share with alumni and friends.

Our first conference planning call will be on August 15, 2019, and we'll have the chance to review some wonderful ideas.  We welcome your suggestions on how we can make this event as memorable as our previous conference earlier this year.
