Since this fund is focusing on underlying causes what is Unum/Colonial doing in the policy/advocacy space since underlying causes includes systemic/institutional racism.

46:14
is there a guideline as far as the average amount to be requested
Rachel Hargis
46:15
@Ericka Wooten, wework closely with our Government Affairs team and align with our core values at Unum/Colonial Life when working in the policy/advocacy work which they work on with various partners. We continue to identify nonprofit organizations that are working on the underlying causes of institutional racism and want to partner with them with funding, employee-engagement, and other support we identify.@Kristin Garner, if an organization outside of our typical geographical area submits a grant proposal that aligns with the purpose of the Fund, it will certainly be taken into consideration. Priority will be given to organizations serving our home office and field office communities.
Rachel Hargis
46:39
@Eileen, the Social Justice Fund grants amounts range from $2,500-$10,000.
Sara Massey
49:01
I see applications can be submitted once per 12 months. does that mean that the funding period should cover only 1 year? Will there be no multi-year grants initially?
Laurie Rovin
49:23
will you send this presentation to attendees?
jlusk
49:41
Will slide presentations be emailed to us?
Hannah Jarrett
50:08
Is this one-time funding or multi-year funding?
Rachel Hargis
51:02
@Sara Massey and @Hannah Jarrett, these are not multi-year grants, so funding should cover one year.
Joyce G ford

Would Alana gives us her contact information
Sara Massey

Thank you Rachel.
Mary Butz

@Hannah Jarrett, there are currently no guidelines prohibiting organizations from requesting funding for the same program year over year. It does bear noting that our focus for the remainder of 2020 is on racial justice, while the focus will expand in 2021 to the broader topic of social justice. Also, there is no guarantee that a program, if funded one year, will again be funded a following year.
Hannah Jarrett

Thank you, Rachel
Maurice Lawyer

Q: if your organization's mission is not specifically focused on "social justice" but you do work with families and students living in poverty & faced with access disparities - Can you apply for this type of grant?
Hannah Jarrett
01:01:44
Can you give an example(s) of an outcome you'd expect from a program in a 12 month period?
Maurice Lawyer
01:02:12
Thank you
jlusk
01:08:30
So the grant could be requested for staff training in this area?

Bravo, Alana!! Very informative. Looking forward to talking to you about the work of Social Justice Racial Equity Collaborative, a partnership of 40 community leaders and nonprofit partners addressing the gap pieces in systemic racism through the umbrella of Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation in Charleston that will resonate statewide and nationally.
