The Giving List and Microsoft’s Nonprofit Tech Acceleration with Friends at The Battery in San Francisco

By Giving List Staff   |   May 27, 2022

We’re sharing news about our recent in-person event held at the The Battery in San Francisco. 

The event was hosted in partnership with Microsoft’s Nonprofit Tech Acceleration for Black and African Communities program, which has supported more than 1,600 Black-led, Black-serving nonprofits across the nation in the two years since it was launched. 

In the lead up today’s grim anninversary of George Floyd’s murder, both events were focused on what corporate and institutional philanthropy have done right and wrong in the intervening years and what’s next. In Los Angeles, The California Wellness Foundation’s Alex Johnson reminded us of Dr. King’s prescient words: “This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.”
