Kaci Patterson, Co-founder, Building Leaders and Cultivating Change (B.L.A.C.C.)

April 6, 2016

Blog_Kaci“My life is dramatically different because somebody who I don’t know, who I will probably never meet, put their money to use on my behalf. I feel a great sense of gratitude for that, and it gives me a deep sense of personal responsibility to be a driving force of opportunity for other people.

The Building Leaders and Cultivating Change (B.L.A.C.C.) giving circle is a way to bring together like-minded professionals to connect our thinking and our dollars and put our money on a mission. We are concerned about the state of our community, and we want to be involved in making a better Los Angeles. It’s important for us as black professionals to be engaged in the business of uplifting our community and to make black philanthropy a pivotal piece of how communities are empowered and built. When we do that, all of L.A. benefits.”
