**Black Philanthropy Month — TENacity: Making Equity Real**

Black Philanthropy Month is a national, coordinated effort to celebrate African American and African-descent giving in all its forms. In celebration of the initiative’s 10th anniversary, this year’s theme, TENacity: Making Equity Real, seeks to inform, involve, inspire and invest in Black philanthropic leadership to strengthen African American and African-descent giving. Founded in 2011 by Dr. Jackie Copeland-Carson and Pan-African Women’s Philanthropy Network, Black Philanthropy Month encompasses self-organized events, community dialogue and charitable giving across the nation. Community members can follow the national conversation via social media by following #BPM2021 and learn more about ways to celebrate at www.blackphilanthropymonth.com.
