We are thrilled to announce that the Council of Urban Professionals (CUP) has more than doubled our fundraising goal on #CUPGivingTuesday!
 
Both individuals and corporations came together to show their support for CUP and diverse, emerging leaders. Each donor serves as an example of how individuals can use their voices and gifts to create meaningful change in our society. Because of our generous supporters, CUP is able to continue our efforts to seek racial, ethnic, and gender parity by connecting, empowering, and mobilizing the next generation of diverse business and civic leaders.

There are many ways you can use your voice, your platform, and power for the betterment of our society:
  • Inspire others in your life to commit to being courageous advocates and leaders in their communities and become a CUP Member.
  • Entertain a dinner table conversation about what it means to be a real leader and share the outcome with us via our social media channels.
  • Make a donation today to help sustain CUP and be a part of the solution. No amount is too small, and every dollar is greatly appreciated.
This year, it is more important than ever that we draw inspiration from others and work towards a more just and equitable society for all.

 
P.S. Double the joy of giving a gift this holiday season! Use smile.amazon.com to shop and Amazon will donate to the Council of Urban Professionals Institute. You'll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, but also be supporting CUP!
