Culminating the month-long celebration of Black Philanthropy Month, several local nonprofit organizations will participate in the third annual Give 8/28, a national charitable giving day dedicated to inspiring philanthropy by and for Black communities. For 24-hours on August 28, Give 8/28 will virtually drive support of nearly 400 Black-led and Black-benefiting nonprofit organizations with the goal of raising $250,000 nationwide for causes that directly impact the communities they serve. “The power of charitable giving, at its heart, ensures everyone’s voices can be heard and that diversity is respected, celebrated, and encouraged,” said Roxie Jerde, President and CEO of the Community Foundation. "The spirit behind Give 8/28 brings into the spotlight the diversity of our community and how grand, macro societal change comes from within our community.”
