Gather, Give, Grow Philanthropy- Minority Philanthropy Initiative Giving Circle

The Community Foundation invites you to join us for the first-ever Minority Philanthropy Initiative (MPI) giving circle event! On Thursday, October 28th community members will have the opportunity to pool resources and help others on a larger scale.

This multi-cultural event will focus on gathering more than 100 diverse individuals and give away $10,000. At registration, guests will nominate their favorite local nonprofit organization. There will be a random draw of three organizations from the top ten organizations receiving 10 nominations or more. Each of the three organizations from the random draw will present a three-minute pitch about their organization. Attendees will then anonymously vote for one of the three organizations. The organization receiving the most votes will receive $5,000. Second and third place will receive $3,000 and $2,000 respectively.

You will enjoy food tastings from around the world, watch drumlines, a step show, and a middle eastern dance. We hope you can join us to truly enjoy an evening with like-minded community members who want to gather, give and grow minority-led philanthropy.

When: Thursday, October 28
Time: 5-7 pm
Where: Blue Water Convention Center, 800 Harker St., Port Huron
