Whether your organization is a new member, a long-time member, or you are a nonprofit leader thinking about joining, you may be asking yourself:

"How do I make the most of Together SC membership and make sure our entire team benefits?"

A great first step is to join this call to hear about new services and the many reasons to be a part of South Carolina's statewide network of charitable and philanthropic organizations.

Join us for a virtual lunchtime session hosted by Together SC VP Benjamin Bullock, and our team of consultants as he shares new benefits and services for nonprofit members in the works for the coming fiscal year.

You can bet more peer networks for staff will top the list.
