About Ebonie

A witness to the impact of community leadership and a believer that giving happens at all levels, Ebonie Johnson Cooper’s mission to give back to her community has been a life-long passion. Inspired by her parents and the kind spirit of her family, Ebonie always knew helping those around her was a fundamental part of life.

After landing her first board seat and leading a triumphant grassroots campaign to save her favorite restaurant in 2009, in 2010 Ebonie began Friends of Ebonie to be a fundraising and volunteer blog for her real – life friends. Now a leading platform for social responsibility for young black professionals, Friends of Ebonie is an educational resource for black millennial giving, a thought – leadership platform and an on – line community connecting young black givers to one another. In addition to managing Friends, Ebonie is also a freelance writer, marketing communication professional and an occasional consultant to institutions and organizations seeking to engage young urban professionals and philanthropists.

In her philanthropic leadership, Ebonie served as the Vice-President on the Junior Board of New York Cares, Inc. from 2009 – 2013, she is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and a dedicated member to Reid Temple AME Church in Glen Dale, MD.
