Uplifting Change is Liberty Hill's initiative to connect local donor-activists and help them leverage community assets to strengthen Black Los Angeles through philanthropic investment in grassroots community organizing.
Uplifting Change is anchored by an annual Summit held in February. The Uplifting Change Summit is an invitation-only event for people seeking to increase the strategic impact of their giving to organizations working to uplift change and advance social justice in Black communities. If you'd like to be kept apprised of this event and other Uplifting Change news, register for our monthly updates.
At the Uplifting Change Summit, participants:
- Connect with an intimate group of donor-activists committed to advancing social justice and building a movement of African American philanthropy.
- Learn practical tools to leverage your giving to build stronger organizations and develop new leaders in the community.
- Hear from noted researchers about trends in African American philanthropy.
- Be inspired to move from blueprint to action.
Since launching in February 2010, Liberty Hill's Uplifting Change has inspired hundreds of people at its annual Summit which convenes African American donor-activists interested in investing in new solutions, strong leaders and effective organizations.
