Black leadership in philanthropy is key to engaging in authentic and informed grantmaking in communities of color.
Give Black, Give Back recognizes donors and the variety of ways they give — not only large gifts, but also the impactful volumes of small gifts and collective giving that Black families, faith-based institutions and civic organizations provide.
The initiative works to engage and encourage Black philanthropists to continue enhancing the vibrancy of our community by:
- Serving as a resource to amplify the Black-led funds at CFMT;
- Helping to foster new partnerships among Black philanthropists as well as Middle Tennessee’s nonprofit organizations with similar aspirations for serving the community;
- Providing access and education to the community at-large to help close the racial wealth gap.
The words of the prolific first African American Nobel Prize-winning author, the late Toni Morrison, “If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else,” inspire the work of highlighting and supporting Black Philanthropists and Black-led nonprofit organizations.Learn More
