Announcing 2025 SC Nonprofit Summit

Posted By: Andrea Tucker Nonprofit Summit,

  A Message from the 2025 Nonprofit Summit Co-Chairs

    Hello All!

    We are thrilled that our three organizations are collaborating to help design this year's Summit. 

    In 2024, nearly 30 members, partners, and leaders from Together SC contributed to crafting the Summit's agenda, program, and plenary sessions - and the Summit evaluations proved their work had a tremendous impact. Let’s build on their success in 2025.

    Embracing Our Theme: Creating Common Ground

    Our Summit theme, Creating Common Ground, is inspired by the powerful words of Martin Luther King Jr.: "A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus." In a time of increasing political polarization, finding and forge common ground is more challenging yet more crucial than ever. Nonprofit and philanthropic organizations stand apart from these divides, focusing on community needs and solutions that enhance the quality of life for every individual and family in South Carolina.

    Leading Through Consensus

    As an industry driven by nonpartisan missions, we are often called upon to navigate complex political climates, intricate public policies, and dynamic community partnerships. Our sector bears the heavy yet noble responsibility of molding consensus to achieve systemic change. This task requires us to hone our skills, forge strategic partnerships, foster open collaboration, and leverage deep expertise.

    The 2025 SC Nonprofit Summit empowers the nonprofit and philanthropic sector to create common ground around the pressing issues impacting our communities and our state.
