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.

Typically Colonial Life prioritizes grants on Richland and Lexington counties, is this still the case or is this available to all South Carolina orgs?
Bonita D. Clemons and Donna Mack with (SCCHWA) South Carolina Community Health Worker Association
is there a guideline as far as the average amount to be requested
@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.
@Eileen, the Social Justice Fund grants amounts range from $2,500-$10,000.
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?
will you send this presentation to attendees?
Will slide presentations be emailed to us?
Is this one-time funding or multi-year funding?
@Sara Massey and @Hannah Jarrett, these are not multi-year grants, so funding should cover one year.

Would Alana gives us her contact information
Thank you Rachel.
Could you place the last slide with what you seek to fund back up please? Thanks!
Can orgs apply for the same program annually?
YES!! The summit was amazing.

@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.
Thank you, Rachel
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?
Can you give an example(s) of an outcome you'd expect from a program in a 12 month period?
So the grant could be requested for staff training in this area?
Can we collaborate with other local nonprofits to submit grant.
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.
