“One reason little has been written about Black philanthropy is that the word philanthropy evokes images of large foundations and wealthy philanthropists, which are scarce in the Black community. When one expands the concept to include giving money, goods, and time; Blacks emerge as having a strong, substantial philanthropic tradition.”
Dr. Emmett Carson, CEO and President, Silicon Valley Foundation
