The Black Philanthropy Initiative offers learning events throughout the year as we bring together BPI’s supporters to learn more about critical issues impacting Black residents in Forsyth County. Here are some opportunities throughout the year when you can join us!
Each fall, BPI hosts its annual fundraiser to celebrate its mission to encourage our community to use their time, talent and treasure to strengthen Black communities in Forsyth County. In 2021, we hosted this event virtually with the theme, All Hands on Deck: Celebrating & Strengthening Our Growing Black Philanthropy Movement. Watch our new video to hear what BPI grants are making possible in the community.
Every August, BPI observes Black Philanthropy Month. Founded by Jackie Bouvier Copeland in 2011, Black Philanthropy Month highlights the many forms of giving among African-descent communities. It provides a time to be more intentional than ever to reflect on the incredible fortitude and generosity of the Black community throughout history.
