Come see NCRP out in the field
North Carolina Network of Grantmakers
2018 Annual Meeting and Conference “One North Carolina”
February 28-March 1, 2018
Jeanné Isler, NCRP’s vice president and chief engagement officer, will moderate two concurrent sessions centered on investing in work for justice and inclusion in the South – particularly in rural areas. This work can be daunting for philanthropists as structural inequities along race and class lines obscure the progress and exciting potential of systems change efforts that can achieve widespread and deep impact. While there are many philanthropic practices advancing equity – understanding diverse community assets, providing multi-year flexible funding, promoting civic engagement – actually changing practice is a complicated undertaking with complex challenges and lots of players. In order to help the philanthropic sector grow and change, we need to learn from each other and pave our own paths. To this end, Jeanné will draw data and lessons from As the South Grows, an initiative by the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy and Grantmakers for Southern Progress designed to provide national and Southern funders alike with practical tools they need to partner effectively with communities on the frontlines of change.
Panelists for these sessions include:
