To celebrate Black Philanthropy Month, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation is sponsoring the exhibit Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited at the Slover Library in downtown Norfolk from August 16-30. As part of the opening night event on August 16, the community foundation hosted a conversation about Black Philanthropy in Hampton Roads. Don Luzzatto, vice president for civic engagement, shares a recap of the discussion.

A key role of a community foundation like ours is the ability to keep donor funds relevant as our community needs change. One vivid example of that is the Howard Association Fund administered by the Hampton Roads Community Foundation since 1987.
