The Denver Foundation will observe Black Philanthropy Month on August 21 with “Urban Professionals: Giving Back!,” an evening of networking and conversation featuring giving circle leaders of color in their communities. The discussion will focus on being strategic with gifts of time, talent, treasure and testimony. Event hosts include Denver African American Philanthropists and Community Investment Network. RSVP by August 19 to email@example.com.
In related news, the foundation recently announced a $300,000 grant award from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to amplify giving in communities of color. David Miller, President and CEO of the Denver Foundation stated in a press release, “The values of generosity and giving are deeply embedded in communities of color. We simply aim to connect existing and emerging donors to philanthropic vehicles such as giving circles, scholarship funds, donor-advised funds, and business funds to support issues they care about most.”
