[ Philanthropy Reframed ] A New Short Video

The Giving Back Project is proud to release Philanthropy Reframed: a new 2.5 minute video trailer for the Giving Back Project and its centerpiece publication, the 400-page hardcover book "Giving Back:  A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists."

The Giving Back Project is a civic engagement campaign comprising artful stories and photography that reframe portraits of philanthropy.

For too long, philanthropy has been narrowly defined by great wealth and large monetary gifts. Prevailing stories and imagery about giving often exclude generous everyday people and feed false notions about who can give and make a difference. Changing the world requires us to rethink and reframe philanthropy. The Giving Back Project reframes portraits of philanthropy.

The project's publications, multimedia presentations and interactive community forums lift up inspiring stories of everyday givers and serve to reclaim the root meaning of philanthropy, love of humanity.

The project is organized by the collective giving circle New Generation of African American Philanthropists, which is bringing a new voice, a new vibe, a new view on philanthropy.
