Happy Black Philanthropy Month!
The Women's Giving Circle of Howard County is proud to continue our support for Black Philanthropy Month (BPM) which is observed every August. The primary aims of BPM are informing, involving, inspiring and investing in Black philanthropic leadership to strengthen African-American and African-descent giving in all its forms, for the benefit of our planet, our communities, our organizations and our lives.
One way we are doing this is through WGC's "Our Giving, Our Stories!" Daily Profile Series:
Beginning on Saturday, August 1 and each day in August thereafter, the WGC will be sharing daily profiles of Howard County philanthropists in celebration of Black Philanthropy Month. We look forward to highlighting these inspirational stories of women in our community who will discuss what moves them to give their time, talent and financial resources, when they started giving to issues that are important to them, and what advice they have for those interested in giving back.
“I am thrilled to be leading the WGC’s “Our Giving, Our Stories!” Profile effort for Black Philanthropy Month” said Malynda Madzel, philanthropist and former WGC Advisory Board Member. “As a long-time supporter of the WGC, I’m excited to elevate the voices of women in our community who give back in so many ways.”
