BPI Advisory Committee

The Black Philanthropy Initiative is led by a group of African-American volunteers who acknowledge the traditions of sharing in the Black community and seek to expand these models of charitable giving through education and engagement.  BPI Advisory Committee members serve in many capacities, including participation on six standing subcommittees: Ad Hoc, Board Development and Governance, Events and Marketing, Executive, Grants, and Resource Development.
