The Sankofa Fund for Civic Engagement (SFCE), a new, local philanthropic fund started by a group of 20 African American young professionals, will host its inaugural community reception on Friday, Feb. 5 from 6-10 p.m.
The event will take place at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center. A donation secures admission to the event. The SFCE is a membership organization committed to funding and supporting organizations, projects, and other efforts that improve Chattanooga’s communities of color.
The fund is housed at the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga. Members commit to making an annual gift to the fund, volunteering for various organizations, and collectively making funding decisions.
