Praise for A Philanthropic Covenant with Black America
"A long overdue call to action! These authors have written pieces that are rich in important detail and perspective; very appropriate for this historic and challenging time. They have addressed important topics on the uniquely American phenomenon of philanthropy." --Jeffrey A. Wolfman, Director of Institutional Advancement, Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
"Through Covenant wisdom, we can leverage the rich [spiritual and intellectual] capital and historical philanthropic culture that already exists in the Black community to help unseat poverty, lack, and hopelessness. Black communities already know how to fish. The Covenant provides?bigger hooks, ?better bait, and?stronger tackle to get the job done." --Kimberly Mullen-Jackson, Executive Director?&?CEO Wells Fargo Housing Foundation
"At the dawn of a new era in American politics, the essays in this volume offer a ringing call for social and racial justice. Part history, part philosophy, and part handbook, A Philanthropic Covenant with Black America covers a comprehensive range of subjects from the centrality of the prophetic giving tradition to the philanthropic response to Hurricane Katrina, and culminates with a challenge to build a $100 million Covenant Fund.?Along the way, it provides practical guidance on how to build Black social capital, and implement fundraising and wealth building strategies. This is an important contribution to the field, presenting a clear vision for the future of Black philanthropy." --Dr. Eugene D. Miller, Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society at The Graduate Center--The City University of New York
