Central Carolina Community Foundation’s African American Philanthropy Committee (AAPC) convened for the first time in March 2019. The committee promotes, increases and supports Black philanthropy throughout the Midlands.


AAPC’s purpose is twofold:

  1. To redefine the philanthropic narrative in our community through education efforts focused on educating donors of all races on ways to invest in the Black community.
  2. To impact the sustainability and growth of nonprofits in our community by serving as a resource hub for Black-serving nonprofit organizations.

Black Philanthropy Month

August is Black Philanthropy Month! Each year we partner with local organizations to celebrate all month long through events and stories.

Founded in 2011 by Dr. Jackie Copeland-Carson and Pan-African Women’s Philanthropy Network, the initiative encompasses self-organized events, community dialogue, and charitable giving across the nation.
