We are very excited to see one of our own in the spotlight! Victor Brooks, we are proud and honored to have you as part of our team!!
In his spotlight article, Victor shares what he sees as the vision for black philanthropy, his first encounter with it within his family or community, his history with the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Greater Houston Chapter, what keeps him motivated and his accomplishments. Below is a quick preview of Victor’s interview:
“Anyone who donates their time, treasure and/or talent to a charitable cause is a philanthropist. I would love to see an increased acknowledgment of the long history of Black philanthropists in Houston—from the former slaves who came together with $1,000 to create Emancipation Park (and the Third Ward residents that helped restore it) to today’s Black philanthropists who provide a steady stream of support and manpower to countless community-based initiatives that are often unknown or overlooked by other philanthropic groups.”
