September 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

What does it mean to philanthropic organizations to have a diverse board? How do you cultivate relationships and find experts in the areas you support? The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland has spent the last two decades serving Cleveland in the spirit of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, who minister to the community’s most vulnerable residents. To find success in areas of homelessness, health, education and
Catholic sister ministries, the foundation has developed a robust board of directors with varying perspectives and expertise. The foundation credits much of its success to this deeply engaged group of individuals, all committed to the sisters’ model of serving to the margins of society and creating a community where opportunities for growth and quality of life are shared by all.

This panel discussion will engage a small group of board members of the Sisters of Charity Foundation in conversation to learn more about their own experiences and reflections on black philanthropy, why they accepted the call to serve, and how together, we can all work toward achieving equity in leadership to reflect our vision within our communities.

  • Thank You to the 80+ AMAZING women who came to the 2nd #courtneycoverscleveland #ladiesnight there were so many ladies we couldn’t all fit in the picture so I’m posting two! .
I think it’s safe to say we had a GREAT night of fun from such a diverse group of women and perspectives! The conversation facilitated by me and my extremely talented, and gifted (she has such a way with words) cohost @mrsjazminemarie was HOT and DEEP (whew lawd it was soooo real) yet fun and enlightening- thank you ALL for being so honest and transparent about so many  situations we go through as women! We were able to learn so much from each other and that’s what I enjoy most! From the wine- to the dancing we were able to let loose and enjoy each other all night! .
THANKS for all the support you ladies show me and my events! Let me know below what you enjoyed most about the night! .
More pictures and thank you’s coming shortly. .

My Fab-JACK-ulous Staycation in downtown #Cleveland was fun from beginning to end. It started dropping my car to valet @hiltoncleveland - then we walked all night long! We enjoyed a Rooftop on East 4th for drinks and dinner, then the @indians game and of course ended the night at the only place you should @jackclecasino  Read all about it on #courtneycoverscleveland ((LINK IN MY BIO))
