Women’s Foundation of the South Celebrates its Anniversary and Urges Black Philanthropists to Support Black-Led Non-Profits in Honor of Black Philanthropy Month this August

NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/

The organization’s prevailing reason for its efforts is to build the health, wealth, and power of women and girls of color in the South.
