BHM Giving Campaign


During Black History Month EVERYONE can make an impact! Beginning February 1st, make a donation of as little as $1/day for the 28 days of February to support MIP's quest to close the nonprofit racial leadership gap.

We have raised $1,176.00 of our goal.

Real Change Starts With YOU!

Diversity in the leadership of nonprofits is important for achieving our missions, making communities better, and solving complex social challenges.  Yet, 90% of nonprofit CEOs are white, as are 84% of board members.  Nearly 70% of nonprofit board members are dissatisfied with the racial and ethnic makeup of their boards.  Nonprofits in Connecticut and across the country are struggling to recruit, retain, and develop racial & ethnic minorities for leadership.  


Support MIP TODAY!

Your unrestricted donation to MIP will be used to provide board training and leadership development for professionals of color; to train nonprofits on strategies to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion on their boards and leadership teams; and to create networking opportunities between minority professionals and nonprofits.
