About Our Organization

Story About Us
Where it all began

Who are We?

Our ultimate goal is to achieve positive change for the greater good of our community. Our greatest joy is derived from engaging in and supporting community initiatives. Sharon coined the name S-Wave six years ago, when the Build a Backpack Project was originally launched. The S represented Sharon, and the wave signified the ripple impact that a single act of kindness may cause. Mark founded Smile Sharing and ICare over six years ago with the goal of creating and sustaining smiles both locally and globally. His philanthropy also extended to developing opportunities for our community to develop financial capacity. Divine intervention brought us together in 2021 with one assignment: to have a greater impact on effecting change in the lives we encounter. Together, we co-founded the Afro-Canadian Philanthropic Initiative in 2022.


The Afro Canadian Philanthropic Initiative serves as a catalyst for acts of kindness, connecting our communities within Canada and abroad by celebrating Black generosity and creating a model of equity for those who are disenfranchised.


Driven by sustainable development, ACPI is a national and global organization that fosters the belief and practice that one act of kindness prospers into many acts of kindness with the purpose of establishing a legacy of socioeconomic equity in Black communities.


ACPI’s Legacy of Change

  • Leaving our footprints of good deeds in communities across Canada and abroad.
  • Building Afro-Canadian legacies by changing the life of one person with one act of kindness.
  • Creating a model of empathy, understanding, and equity for generations to come

History About Us

The Afro Canadian Philanthropic Initiative was founded out of the need to create meaningful change in the Black Community; and to recognize sponsors of our community who are impacting the lives of others with acts of kindness.

ACPI is a charitable non-profit organization where sponsors and beneficiaries of ACPI’s giving are cultivated to create equity and to provide material goods, services, and financial support to sponsors of the Black Community and the African Diaspora across Canada, in the Caribbean, and Africa.
