Cultures of Giving Legacy Initiative
The Cultures of Giving Legacy Initiative (CGLI) was established in 2008 as an identity fund of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo. The Council consists of civic leaders of color who recognize the importance of endowment-building as a sustainable means of inspiring philanthropy for and within communities of color.
Members all share a desire to “pay it forward” in honor of those who helped them succeed by creating a legacy of success that will encourage collective giving to support positive change in the lives of youth of color living in low-income communities.
- Provide youth with access to people, places and experiences that will help them develop and achieve positive life goals;
- Support non-profit organizations that improve quality of life for communities of color; and
- Inspire additional philanthropy within communities of color.
