On the second Monday of every month we join with The Cleveland Foundation and Ink+ LLC to host a #CLE4Good tweet chat. These chats are open to everyone everywhere, especially those located throughout Northeast Ohio. Join us to meet new colleagues, share information, get advice, and have fun.
On Monday, February 10, 2014, we are starting off the new year by talking about the 2014 African- American Philanthropy Summit. This April 26, 2014 event, organized by the Cleveland Foundation's African-American Philanthropy Committee, has the theme,“Inspiring 100 Acts of African-American Philanthropy.” It will be a celebration of existing philanthropists and a call-to-action for aspiring philanthropists. The keynote luncheon address will be delivered by Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the Hutchins Center for African and African-American Research at Harvard University.
Join with members of the African-American Philanthropy Committee including: Co-Chair Justin Horton, Wealth Advisor with Stratos Wealth Partners in Solon; Nicole Bell-Moye, Executive Director, President's Council Foundation; and Connie Hill-Johnson, Owner and Managing Director, Visiting Angels, to discuss questions like:
- What role do you believe philanthropists play in the future of Greater Cleveland?
- What should participants in the 2014 African-American Philanthropy Summit look forward to in the program?
- The #tag for the Summit is #GivingHasNoColor. What does that mean to you?
- What would you say to individuals who want to be philanthropic but feel that they must be wealthy?
Make sure you are following @FCCleveland, @InkPlusLLC, or @CleveFoundation on Twitter. To participate, you'll need a Twitter account, which you can create for free at Twitter.com. At 12pm we will announce the chat has begun. The moderator will post questions to get the discussion flowing, and get people talking! Make sure to use the hashtag #CLE4Good at the end of each tweet so your opinions are included in the discussion.
One tool I would recommend is TweetChat. TweetChat is a web app that makes Twitter chats feel more like an old-school chat room. The best part about TweetChat is that it will automatically insert the hashtag for the chat at the end of all your tweets so you don't need to remember to add it. To use:
1. Go to http://tweetchat.com
2. Use the sign-in button at the top right corner of the screen to authorize TweetChat to use your twitter account
3. Once you're signed in, enter the chat's hashtag (in this case, #CLE4Good) without the # sign into the search box at the top center and press go.
4. You're ready to go. Write your tweets in the box without worrying about the hashtag and enjoy the chat.
We'll see you then!
