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.
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.
Many thanks to our volunteers who are helping to guide this work: Ivory Harding, Stacey Hill, Allyson Reaves, Sanders Adu, Ocie Fulford, and Ahli Moore.
Our Cruise Planning Task Force will map out some fun ideas for the 2020 Cruise, which will be next July. Contact us at blackalumnisummit (@) gmail.com if you'd like to join the effort!
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.
The following are lined up for this fitness & fundraising challenge: Clemson Black Alumni Council, LSU: A.P. Turead Sr. Black Alumni Chapter, University of Alabama Black Alumni Association, and My Carolina Black Alumni Council (USC). The school with the most miles wins, and we will announce the winner on September 1, 2019. Good luck to all!
