National Philanthropy Day®, November 15, is the special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy—and those people active in the philanthropic community—have made to our lives, our communities and our world.
The BCCC Foundation celebrates the 25th anniversary of National Philanthropy Day because of the extraordinary impact of the charitable sector and the increasing role it plays in our societies and countries around the world. Billions of dollars are given every year. Millions of programs and services administered to those in needs. Individuals are connected to cause, and to each other. Civic participation, and important societal bonds, are created and strengthened through philanthropy as we work to improve the quality of life for all people.
In the United States alone, there are more than 1 million charitable organizations, and Americans give more than $300 billion annually to charitable causes (Giving USA Foundation). In Canada, more than 88,000 charities provide countless services to millions of Canadians, who in turn contribute more than $10 billion annually to those organizations (Canada Revenue Agency).. The quality of life for all people—everything from education, healthcare, the environment and the arts, to name only a few—would be far less if not for these organizations.
This year on Philanthropy Day®, more than 125 communities and 50,000 people around the world will participate in NPD events and celebrations. These events include award ceremonies, galas, luncheons, seminars and other special events. Outstanding donors, volunteers, corporations, foundations, small businesses, youth in philanthropy and others will be honored on NPD in recognition of their work in improving their communities and their world every day.

The BCCC 2009 Maryland Charity Campaign (MCC) which concluded January 31, 2010 achieved record-breaking support from faculty and staff—including $12,533 in contributions for the BCCC Foundation.
The College’s MCC effort was coordinated by Herbert Sledge, BCCC Director of Advertising in the Institutional Advancement, Marketing & Research division.
“I express my appreciation to all BCCC employees who made contributions to the 2009 Maryland Charity Campaign, which received record-breaking support from faculty and staff, with a final total of $20,459," said Sledge. “This is a significant increase over our 2008 total of $4,600. In fact, Baltimore City Community College achieved the highest year-to-year MCC percentage increase of all state agencies. Ninety-two employees contributed, and 19 made donations of $500 or more – thereby distinguishing themselves as MCC Leadership Givers. The College’s record-breaking charitable giving through the MCC is even more outstanding, when we consider the challenging economic times that we are facing.”
Sledge said BCCC donors designated $12,533 of the overall total to the BCCC Foundation. Other designations included such charities as American Red Cross, Associated Black Charities, House of Ruth Maryland, and UNICEF.
As coordinator of the College’s campaign, Sledge gave special thanks to the MCC Captains who assisted in achieving collegewide success. They include Arlene Jacobson – Library; Eileen Waitsman – Financial Services; Tira Barnes – Facilities; Eileen McGrath – Business & Finance; Ada Kearse-Brown – CITS; Norrine Harper – Student Affairs; Lanessa Williams – Student Affairs; Susie Forbes – Academic Affairs; Ricky Pierce – Academic Affairs; Ellen Abdul-Rabb – BCED; Thomas Hampton – President’s Office; and Laura Mullen – Public Safety.
