Black Philanthropy Month &
Give 8/28 Day

Support more than 160 local Black-led and Black-benefiting nonprofits in August through the Midlands Gives year-round platform.


What is Black Philanthropy Month?

Black Philanthropy Month (BPM), observed every August, is a national, coordinated effort to celebrate African-descent giving in all its forms. We, along with our African American Philanthropy Committee, celebrate this month each year to recognize and uplift the voices of our region’s Black philanthropists. Through stories and action-focused communication, we share how Black philanthropists impact our community with their time, talent, and treasure.

What is Give 8/28?

Give 8/28 is a national, concentrated day of giving that builds on the momentum of BPM. This year, donors can use the Midlands Gives year-round platform to support more than 160 local Black-led-and-benefiting nonprofits Monday, August 28 through Thursday, August 31, 2023. We proudly support Give 8/28 and welcome community members to support one of the more than 160 nonprofits on the Midlands Gives year-round giving platform.
