Black Excellence Campaign
Building Our Community Together
August 15 – October 15
We are asking hundreds of Black people to give the first gifts towards the building of The Center. Let’s show that we have the power and commitment of the Black community to make this project happen! Our goal is to raise $50,000 from up to 500 Black contributors by October 15. Give in your name, your children’s names and/or in memoriam of a Black elder.

Black donations of any size from $10 – $10,000+ will be recognized on our website, on our social media, and on a special tribute honoring the first Black donors of The Center inside our future building.*
