Celebrating National #GivingBlackDay!

We're just 51 days away from our #CBMATurns10 Anniversary Gala and Fundraiser on October 18, 2018, where we'll celebrate a decade of building and battling for Black men and boys. 

Today however, we're excited to uplift another special occasion: the annual "Giving Black Day" -- a celebration of giving for Black-led and Black-benefitting organizations to uplift giving by and for Black communities!

#GivingBlackDay takes place during Black Philanthropy Month, a global celebration of African-descendant giving held each August and founded in 2011 by Dr. Jackie Copeland-Carson and the Pan-African Women's Philanthropy Network (PAWPNet). As a proud sponsor of Black Philanthropy Month, CBMA was excited to welcome one of its founding architects, Valaida Fullwood, on our August Network Call to talk about the initiative and why philanthropy is crucial to the future of Black men and boys and all Black people.


In addition to checking out and sharing the call with your networks, here are other ways you can participate in #GivingBlackDay:

1. Support the next 10 years of CBMA's mission to build beloved communities for Black men and boys by supporting our anniversary Gala. BUY TICKETS OR BECOME A SPONSOR HERE!
