"Philanthropy is commendable but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary." 

- Martin Luther King Jr.


Tumultuous. Tenuous. Precious. This moment presents an unprecendented opportunity to seize a new future for Black people everywhere, struggling amid the impacts of twin pandemics: Covid-19 and anti-Black racism.

As Black Philanthropy Month™ (BPM) nears a decade, we are proud to have engaged nearly 17 million people worldwide to advance Black giving. But these new times require new measures. Our organizations were underfunded before 2020. Now they are devastated. To rebuild our communities, we must support both our nonprofits and our businesses. So, for BPM 2020, we expanded beyond philanthropy to also consider how all forms of funding can advance the economic justice so essential for racial equity.

With $1.2 trillion in buying power, as well as a multi-billion dollar giving and investment economy in the US alone, Black people possess the means to jump-start the monumental community rebuilding required in the wake of the coronavirus crisis and public demands for racial justice. 

The Black Giving and Beyond Summit invited all leaders to reimagine how to use philanthropy, social impact investing, angel investing, and venture capital to create a more equitable future. 

An inaugural global convening of Black Philanthropy Month™, the Summit was designed to be a participatory virtual experience for learning, networking and transformation. It is made possible by knowledgeable partners and generous sponsors from the US, Africa and across the Diaspora.

The Black Giving and Beyond Summit ran through August with a series of convenings and culminated in New Black Funding Principles to scale effective racial justice and multi-faceted recovery. Featured speakers included:

  • August 1  |  Soledad O'Brien, Benjamin Jealous, Bakari Sellers, Jessica O. Matthews and Joy Buolamwini
  • August 4  |  Aisha Muhammad-Oyebode
  • August 5  |  Dikembe Mutombo
  • August 29 | Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Kwanza Jones, Dr. Natalia Kanem, Susan Taylor Batten, Jackie Bouvier Copeland, Latanya Mapp Frett, Trista Harris, Solome Lemma, and many more!
