About this grant

This grant will provide renewal support to Associated Black Charities for its African American Philanthropy Initiative, a project designed to build the capacity of the organization, develop and deliver educational and outreach materials, and create opportunities to promote institutional philanthropy within the African-American community. The initiative provides charitable giving information to different segments of Maryland’s black community including wealthy African Americans, high-tech and small business entrepreneurs, and their financial advisors. It also offers charitable vehicle options that help donors in their giving, such as donor-advised funds.
