Connecting Philanthropy & Community
Connecting Philanthropy and Community is CAAIP’s signature event that recognizes two leaders in the local philanthropic and nonprofit sectors whose work exemplifies a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in the black community.
The purpose is to highlight exemplary work in fostering meaningful connections between the local philanthropic sector and the diverse communities it serves. Awards will call special attention to philanthropy-community partnerships that identify needs and create strategic opportunities aimed at improving outcomes for African Americans.
The goal is to stimulate dialogue and action around strengthening philanthropy’s commitment to the African American community – by paying tribute to today’s leaders, and by way of recognition of and support for the leaders of tomorrow.
