Giving Tuesday: We Need You for this Important Day of Giving

From The Desk of President Barbara A. Perkins

This holiday season we have so much to be thankful for!

Thanks to you, we’ve been able to help hundreds of individuals in recovery after the devastation of Hurricane Dorian. With your financial support and in-kind donations, mothers, children and families in the Bahamas can begin to repair their lives and work towards long-term restoration.

We’ve also been able to deepen our engagement in the Caribbean and Africa with our children’s Reading Room Initiative, make investments in a women’s medical clinic and launch a female empowerment group in Mampong Bunuso, a village in Kumasi, Ghana. In just a few months we will announce the opening of our Global Leadership Training Center, aimed at becoming the primary training center focused on Black women making a difference in the world in economic advancement, humanitarian engagement, gender equality, cross-cultural business development, entrepreneurship and public policy.

To support our current and future work, I’d like to personally ask you to save the date for Giving Tuesday . This global day of giving is just a few weeks away (December 3rd), but you can get a head start today! When you donate, you support the incredible work the International Black Women's Public Policy Institute does in communities at home and abroad.

Here's what you can do right now: visit our Friend’s Circle to make a donation, share your generosity by posting to your social media feeds, and then challenge five friends to do the same!

In Gratitude,
Barbara A. Perkins
