Finding Promise In Current Events

Posted by Deanna Singh | Sep 3, 2020 3:00:00 AM

Today our guest is Edward M. Jones, the Vice President of Programs at ABFE, a Philanthropic Partnership for Black Communities. In his role, he brings together leaders across the country who are focusing on philanthropic work for organizations led by leaders of color. One of the great things about ABFE is that it creates a great space to learn, convene people, and make sure we are including everybody, particularly African-American issues in our conversations. In our conversation, Edward shares the power of thinking differently about the investments we can make using our time, talent, treasure, and testimony, and challenges us to think about how we can each make a difference.

Topics in this episode

  • The heaviness of the current events, and the promise and opportunity Edward sees in these times
  • Answering the question, “What can I do?”
  • The Four T’s:
    • Time
    • Talent
    • Treasure
    • Testimony
  • Giving circles
  • Something we can all do that is a catalyst to get others on board
  • Thinking about funding in new and different ways


Thank you for being here and we hope you enjoyed this episode. We hope that you learned something and that you will share this to increase the impact we can have on the world. How are you using your four T’s, your time, talent, treasure, and testimonies to lift people up and make an impact? How we make investments of our four T’s will determine how we come out of these hard times and what life looks like on the other side.
