Event description
The State of Philanthropic Giving in the Southeast is an interactive, online event that will discuss the impacts and trends of philanthropy.

About this event

NEW DATE: Tuesday, January 25, 2022!

The past 18 months have been a time of unprecedented need in communities throughout the Southeast. What has been the impact on our region’s nonprofits? How have foundations and individual donors responded? What ongoing trends will impact the future of philanthropy in our region?

We will discuss these questions and more on Tuesday, October 26, during The State of Philanthropic Giving in the Southeast, an interactive, online event presented in partnership between the Spartanburg County Foundation and the Southeastern Council of Foundations (SECF).

Stephen Sherman, SECF’s director of research and data, will join us to review the past, present and future of philanthropy in the region, while also highlighting data and trends specific to South Carolina and Spartanburg County. We will also explore emerging forms of philanthropy poised to make a big impact, including donor-advised funds, giving circles and online giving. This event will also include opportunities for questions and group discussion.

Registration for this event is now open – we hope you can join us!
