To understand the role that philanthropy can play in inclusive economic prosperity, it helps to examine the landscape that contributes to a healthy economic ecosystem that is both equitable and innovative.

The Council on Foundations and our partners, The Spartanburg County Foundation and the Southeastern Council of Foundations, invite you to a dynamic two-day convening at the innovation centers of two prominent Southern corporations - Milliken and BMW Manufacturing - where we will consider the factors that make up a healthy local and regional economy that strives to be inclusive  and promotes innovation.

Our task will be to delve into the role foundations can play in this unique approach to creating a regional economic innovation ecosystem. Immerse yourself in the economic drivers of the South and what constitutes an innovation ecosystem. 

Hear from local, regional, and national experts on the topics such as community leadership, impact investing, resource alignment, and competitive talent development.
