The Cleveland Foundation African-American Philanthropy Summit Gathers a Benevolent Crowd

Hundreds of people flocked to the African-American Philanthropy Summit held by the Cleveland Foundation, integrating a theme entitled “Inspiring 100 Acts of African-American Philanthropy.”

Individuals, business leaders, donors and nonprofits shared ideas and strategies on giving back to the community in ways that have the most social impact. Among the guest speakers were R.A. Vernon, senior pastor of The Word Church and Harvard Professor, Henry Louis Gates Jr. According to Gates Jr., “Black people have a long tradition of giving, we just don’t know it. It’s called the collection plate. We’ve been ponying up pennies and nickels and dimes and quarters for ages and ages.”
