Description

SOUTHERN STRATEGIES, BUILDING POWER, AND STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS

On September 4-6, 2019, Grantmakers for Southern Progress (GSP) will host a funder gathering in Montgomery, Alabama of members, national and regional foundations, and regional leaders to share and discuss mission critical opportunities, challenges, best practices, and call to action for supporting structural change and advancing progress in the South.

During the 3-Day gathering we will kick-off the Convening experience with a self-guided tour of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) Museum and Memorial followed by an opening reception, dinner, and program. The gathering will create a mutual opportunity for national funders and regional leaders to take action in developing and executing on economic development and investment strategies, guided by a shared understanding of how we move towards progress in the region, and supporting approaches for structural change and best practices for achieving equitable outcomes. We will learn from the field; learning with and from each other; and learn how we can best move forward to take action towards progress in the region.

Goals of the Gathering:

1) Learning From the Field ~ Create opportunities for funders to learn from Southern leaders, both in philanthropy and on-the-ground practitioners, as the best thinkers and doers around what success looks like in the region.

2) Learning Together ~Bring together national and regional funders within the GSP network as a mutual learning community, particularly around what structural racism, structural change and racial equity.

3) Taking Action Together ~ Explore and Discuss how do we- as individuals, institutions, practitioners and a collective – How do we take action together towards progress to for real change?

We look forward to you joining us this year.
