Macon celebrating National Black Philanthropy Month

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Griffith Family Foundation along with the Community Foundation of Central Georgia, announced the celebration of National Black Philanthropy Month in Macon.

National Black Philanthropy month serves as an invitation to all African American communities, to promote the power of giving.

Community Foundation of Central Georgia Communications and Development Associate, Nancy Cleveland, says African Americans give at a higher rate even though their family median household income is almost $20,000 less than all other families in America.

“If there is anything I want that people can take away from this month, it is the power, and the giving in the African-American community and its allies,” Cleveland said.
