BlackGivesBack.com (BGB) is the premier online destination for African American philanthropy.  Established in 2007, its mission is to showcase the rich and long history of African Americans as benefactors, as they are often portrayed as passive recipients of philanthropy.  It is believed that knowing these stories of giving in the black community, which are often untold, will inspire others to give back and get involved with issues impacting their communities.   BGB highlights the philanthropic and charitable efforts of individuals, celebrities, high net-worth donors, prominent figures, social entrepreneurs, community leaders, nonprofit and foundation executives and charitable organizations that benefit the African American community.
