Service, community, and philanthropy are a part of the fabric of my family's character. My parents, William and the late Christine Floyd taught me at an early age that giving back to my community through service and giving is an important way to recognize the sacrifices of those whose broad shoulders I have stood on to reach my goals and pursue my success. I value the importance of these ideals, continue to devote an even larger part of my time and resources to their pursuit, and have shared their importance with my immediate family- my wife Carol and daughters Chloe and Charley.

As our family thinks about Black Philanthropy Month, we pay tribute to how we can continue to serve and impact our community while also representing our ideals and values. Locally, we continue to work closely with and actively support several organizations which embody our beliefs, including the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts+Culture. The Gantt Center is a major focus of our family's continued giving and support. It symbolizes the center of African-American culture here in Charlotte and uniquely represents those African-Americans who have sacrificed for the well-being of our family.

We hope that you share with our family the importance of Black Philanthropy Month and consider supporting those organizations that characterize your family's beliefs and values.
