Funder Spotlight: Black Funders of St. Louis

 

 

This month we are joined by Maranda Witherspoon Richardson, CEO and Principal of MWR Coaching and Consulting. She founded the Black Funders of St. Louis (BFSTL) and operationalized the group in April 2016 with the support of 6 other founding members. BFSTL was founded on the principle of collectively pooling time, talent, and treasures to support and transform Black communities. 

As we celebrate Black History Month, come learn about this important work and engage in conversation about the need for, and gift of, Black Philanthropy.
