In this movement moment, it’s time for national funders to look South. Our Southern neighbors have a vibrant history of successful movements for racial and social justice, yet grassroots Southern leaders are often overlooked by philanthropy and lack funding to pursue their own agendas.
The South is already home to a strong ecosystem of people-of-color (POC)-led philanthropic institutions that can help drive resources for racial and social justice. National grantmakers can learn from and partner with these institutions. This webinar will explore the crucial role of POC-led philanthropy in the South, with an emphasis on the powerful potential for significant impact not only in the Southern region, but nationally.
Join NCRP, ABFE, Grantmakers for Souther Progress (GSP) and the Southeastern Council of Foundations (SECF) for a conversation with Takema Robinson, director of the Greater New Orleans Funders Network (moderator); Felecia Lucky, executive director of the Black Belt Community Foundation; Flozell Daniels, Jr., president and CEO of the Foundation for Louisiana; Karen Watson, executive director of the Positive Action Committee; and Fernando Cuevas, executive director of the Southern Partners Fund.
