    Stacks on Deck; Black Fundraising and Philanthropy

    in Culture

    For many years we have discussed the effects of widespread capitalism as a root cause of the current conditions of black folks in America. From chattel slavery to the institutions that were built and created as a result of free capital. With black buying power reaching over $1 trillion dollars, it’s time that we reexamine capitalism through the lenses of fundraising/philanthropy for ourselves to see the institutions and impact that will change our conditions.  By pooling our dollars together, fundraising for our causes, we can change the way that we’re viewed and the physical environments that we dwell in. Solution based radio!

    How The Private Service Industry Impacts Philanthropy

    in Business

    On this episode of DEMA LIVE we will be joined by Philanthropy Expert Ron Poindexter, Senior Learning and Development Specialist for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  Before taking a management position with the foundation, Ron worked as an Executive Assistant. 


    During our discussion we will address how PSP’s impact the ability of their Principals’ to be more involved in philanthropy.  This can range from researching various charities to see which organization’s values best align with the principal’s, to managing how personal donations are made to the organizations. Not only is this charity work rewarding to the Principals involved, but working on philanthropic projects can have lasting, positive effects on PSP’s.
