AFP DC Washington D.C. Metro Chapter: Diversity Dialogues: Bearing Witness to new Research on Major Giving in the African American Community

October 25, 2018

The Reverend Josiah Henson was an enslaved person on the Riley Plantation in Montgomery County, Maryland.  Born in 1837, his remarkable autobiography inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, and he ultimately became one of the most influential international figures of his time.  Using recent in-depth research on giving patterns in urban African American communities, presenters will note how findings apply to their fundraising experiences.  Practical advice and tips to apply lessons learned will be shared.

Learn Objectives:

  • How to secure major gifts and create partnerships in the African American giving community
  • How to address sensitive racial issues with a candid approach that engages multiple perspectives
  • How to apply recent research findings on African American giving to practical strategies and tactics for your situation
