Friends of Ebonie, LLC.

Friends of Ebonie, LLC is the millennial diversity consulting and young philanthropy coaching boutique. Also home of the new Young, Black & Giving Back Institute, we provide philanthropic insight, programming, and resources for and about today’s young black professionals.

Through our unique approach to engaging young black professionals, we help to shape our audience into trailblazing leaders and build the bridge to sustainable engagement relationships for non-profit organizations.

Who are millennials?

Millennials are defined as individuals born between 1982- 1994. They are the generation of limitless possibilities! The most liberal, independent, free-spirited and altruistic generation by far, there’s still lots to uncover about who this generation really is- and who they will become.

Why focus on black millennials?

Because diversity isn’t just a buzz word, it’s the real world. African American or black millennials involved in community work are equipped with the hearts and desires to make a difference. Often times the networks and resources to be entirely effective are not made readily available to them. Consequently, many organizations struggle with the ways and means to engage to this diverse demographic. We connect these dots.

What do we do?

We educate and train.
We equip our audience with tools and resources for effective leadership. Our groundbreaking summit Changing The Face of Philanthropy Summit has changed the way young black professionals learn about civic leadership and engagement. Our interactive webinars provide an opportunity for our audience to get up close and personal with experts on topics related to philanthropy all the way to professional branding. Learn more about the Young, Black & Giving Back Institute.

We consult.
We recognize the communication gap that exists between African American millennials and the non-profit and foundation world. Through proven marketing communication strategies, we lead organizations to young black philanthropists and civic leaders the right way. Learn more about Friends of Ebonie Consulting
