What is a Philanthropists?

phi·lan·thro·pist (fəˈlanTHrəpəst )

Some people may think a philanthropist is a wealthy white man in a seer-sucker suit, wearing a panama straw hat, or a wealthy white woman, wearing strings of pearls with perfectly coifed hair. Often, these are images that some people may have of philanthropists. But, anyone who is willing to give can become a philanthropists; whether it is time or money! Subsequently, all of us can become a philanthropists! Above all, there are many ways that you can support your community! Most importantly, Community Partners can help you on your journey to becoming a Philanthropists!

Giving as a Collective

Many of us have pondered: How can we address social challenges that are present in many low socio-economic African American communities? However, as individuals that can be difficult. As a collective, participate in a mechanism, a Giving Circle, that will impact lives now and for future generations! To become a member of or make a contribution to Community Partners Giving Circle, click on the following link.

Is my giving limited to Louisiana? As a philanthropist, you care deeply about your community. Ultimately, you may want to designate funds to your community. Perhaps, you want to support projects or programs that are regional, state-wide, or even national Black-led charitable organizations. Funds can support any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the country, including churches and colleges. Our team collaborates across our state and country for recommendations and shared knowledge.
