Historically, the Black church has been a core institution for African-American philanthropy. It does not only serve as a faith-based house of worship, but it facilitates organized philanthropic efforts including meeting spiritual, psychological, financial, educational and basic humanitarian needs.

      Throughout the history of philanthropy, faith has played a vital role. Many of this country’s million nonprofits birthed out of religious organizations, and religion continues to garner more than 30% of philanthropic dollars each year. Since , AFP has inspired global change and supported efforts that generated over $1 trillion. AFP’s more t members in over chapters raise over $ billion annually, equivalent to one-third of all charitable giving in North America and millions more around the world.

      Through lots of hard work, grit and a passionate Christian faith he turned a craft business that began in his kitchen into a multi-billion business that enables his vast philanthropy — Hobby Lobby. We have so much to celebrate in these United States of America where our national creed is centered on the truth that we’re all created equal. The Crisis of Faith refers to an event in the Victorian era in which much of Europe’s middle class begins to doubt what is written in the book of Genesis as a reliable source in accordance of how the universe was created (Flynn).
