Good morning all. Also want to thank Duke Energy Foundation and Amanda for being the first philanthropic partner to see the value in Together SC’s Facing Race Together program and to support this work with wonderful grant support. Investment like theirs allows us to keep costs low for you!

Isn’t that typical - folks never realize how “hard” grantmaking can be.

Alana and Amanda - did the advisory committees help develop the priorities/funding parameters, or was that provided to them?
Amanda Dow
44:00
That was provided to our group to help set some parameters since this was completely new to them
Madeleine McGee

United Ways and Community foundation may engage “community led” grantmaking groups in a similar manner as the corporate foundations engage their employees.
Laila Bell

Donna--This is excellent work! What approaches does SOC use to collect and use feedback from grantees and beneficiaries to assess and improve your equity approach?
Debbie Nelson
53:31
o Share your foundation's grantmaking experience in the racial equity and social justice arena.o How can the philanthropic sector ensure that our grantmaking process is accessible to grass-roots organizations and others with limited grant making experience?o How can the philanthropic sector ensure that there are human resources in South Carolina to help nonprofits navigate racial equity and social justice work?o How can grantmakers maintain racial equity and social justice as a priority so it doesn’t become diluted over time?
