Organization description:
The Giving Back Fund is a national public charity with the following goals: to help establish philanthropic role models that will inspire others to give back to their communities and create a high-profile, mutually supportive charitable community that works in support of a diverse range of missions and goals; to help cultivate a new group of philanthropists within the entertainment and sports industries, with an emphasis on groups often underrepresented in traditional philanthropy such as people of color, women and youth; to honor philanthropy in all its aspects, whether manifested by the giving of time, talent or money to assist others; to encourage and support new philanthropy by offering professional, strategic and cost-effective philanthropic consulting and management services.
