Guests: Christina Lewis and Stephanie Ellis-Smith, Co-founders of Give Blck
In the wake of the summer of 2020, when the Black Lives Matter movement became an urgent conversation around the world, donations to racial equity causes through our giving platform reached an all-time high, at $166 million. Just six months later, that momentum slowed down and donations returned to their previous levels.
It was during that summer that Christina Lewis and Stephanie Ellis-Smith joined forces to create Give Blck, an organization designed to raise the visibility of Black-led causes and ensure that support for racial justice didn’t fade away with the news headlines.
Join us as they share stories about their lives in fundraising and teach us how to keep the momentum going towards systemic, long-term change.
