The Black Future Co-op Fund will close out its celebration of the legacy of Black giving, while inspiring increased investment in Black communities during Black Philanthropy Month with a final virtual event from 5–6:30 p.m. this Tuesday, Aug. 31 – “Where is the Money?”

In the wake of social justice uprisings, corporations, foundations, and individuals made pledges to address anti-Black racism and improve equity. However, while some money has been generated, many who made commitments have yet to fulfill those promises.

The virtual panel: “Where is the Money?” will explore:

    • Why words without action perpetuate anti-Black racism.
    • What is needed to move beyond words to create real change.
    • How we can hold people, foundations, and corporations accountable moving forward.

This discussion will be live-streamed on the Black Future Co-op Fund’s Facebookand YouTube channel and will feature a not-to-be-missed collection of panelists, including:

    • C’Ardiss “CC” Gardner Gleser, director of programs and strategic initiatives of Satterberg Foundation 
    • Afi Tengue, vice president of philanthropy and impact of Giving Compass
    • Aisha Al-Amin, donor relations manager of Powerful Voices

“The KD Hall Foundation believes Black Philanthropy Month is essential,” said KD Hall Foundation president and CEO KD Hall. “When funding comes from Black-led organizations, it makes the work that much sweeter. We are grateful for the architects of the Black Future Co-op Fund, who blessed up with an inaugural We See You grant. This flexible, unrestrictive funding uplifts our efforts to provide opportunities, mentorship and sponsorship for young women and girls through their educational journey, enabling a lifelong path of leadership.”
