Possible Proviso Could Impact Nonprofits

Posted By Ann Timberlake, Together SC Lobbyist, Wednesday, May 15, 2019

UPDATE (5/23/19): The Conference Committee removed the proviso from the Budget. Thank you to folks who called their legislators/Conference Committee members!


Transparency for nonprofits to account for state funds is a good thing. But ill-conceived provisos like the one added by Senator Tom Corbin to the Senate budget are not. Hopefully, reason will prevail in the budget conference committee that meets again this Thursday afternoon.

Provisos are one year amendments to the budget. There is already language on the books (117.21) requiring nonprofits receiving state funds to report on the goals for the money, the implementation success and the current operating budget. 

Corbin would ask nonprofits to also report how the funds were used to staff positions and the salaries for each position - but the caveat is the last sentence which says that “the provisions shall not be construed as requiring the disclosure of confidential or proprietary information.”

If you know a member of the House Ways & Means Com, you can ask that member to share your concerns with the three House conferees (Rep’s Murrell Smith, Gary Simrill, and Todd Rutherford). Personal contact with your local W&M member is best because the conferees are overburdened with requests. 

Together SC is working to educate legislators about the value of nonprofits to South Carolina and I'll be at the State House this week urging the House conferees to reject the unnecessary Corbin proviso so we can work with legislators next year to improve bills already filed that would establish fair and transparent reporting standards (H3133 and S491).

SCANPO mourns loss of Fred Sheheen, arts and education advocate

Posted By SCANPO, Thursday, June 9, 2016
Our entire team at SCANPO was deeply saddened earlier this week when we received news that Fred Sheheen had passed away on Monday in a tragic car accident. 

Fred was a staple in the nonprofit community. He founded, directed and taught at the Nonprofit Leadership Institute at Francis Marion University, where many of our SCANPO team and members received their education and training. 

Every year, he presented the Award for Nonprofit Leadership at the Nonprofit Summit and our team always looked forward to seeing him in attendance. 

In addition to his contributions to our nonprofit community, Fred was also the director of the Institute of Nonprofit Leadership. He served as the executive director for South Carolina’s Commission on Higher Education for more than a decade. Fred taught an honors course on South Carolina State Government for the University of South Carolina, worked as a journalist and served as press secretary for former South Carolina Governor and Senator Donald Russell.  

A graduate of Duke University and the Institute for Education Management at Harvard University, Fred also received honorary degrees from Lander University, Claflin University and the Technical College of the Lowcountry. 

Fred is the father of state Senator Vincent Sheheen, D-Kershaw. In addition to his son and his family, Sheheen is survived by his wife, Rose; brothers Bob and Austin Sheheen and their respective families; and daughters Maria Sheheen Spring and Margaret Sheheen Bishop and their respective families.
