BlackGivesBack.com founder Tracey Webb, also the founder of The Black Benefactors (BB) giving circle in Washington, DC, shares her journey creating the BB in a blog post for Resource Generation. To date the BB has granted $20,000 to ten nonprofit organizations in the DC region including its most recent grant award of $6,000 to Dreaming Out Loud, Inc., a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire and build a more ethical society through human development, community engagement and social enterprise.
To learn more about giving circles and community philanthropy, make plans to attend the 10th annual Community Investment Network conference in Durham, NC, October 2-5, 2014. Registration is now available at http://www.thecommunityinvestment.org/2014-conference/.
