Bay Area Blacks in Philanthropy

10351179_884248144926151_7337367896481503155_nBay Area Blacks in Philanthropy (BABIP) is a regional, nonprofit membership organization whose mission is to advance the interests of African Americans in philanthropy and address the impact of racial disparity within philanthropic institutions and African American communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Bringing together foundation professionals – trustees, program officers, administrative and technical staff – with corporate, governmental, and association representatives, BABIP members are a strong leadership core within the sector, and individually and collectively, and add a needed black perspective to philanthropic discourse and debate. With your support as a member or affiliate, we can ensure that black people, issues, and communities are represented in the philanthropic sector.
