Event Details

The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access (IDEA) Committee of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Lowcountry Chapter, in conjunction with TogetherSC, is hosting a meeting of the minds to discuss Why Color-Blind Philanthropy Creates More Blind Spots. The panel discussion will encourage a candid dialogue about the blind spots that exist in fundraising and steps we all can take to move in a new and improved direction. Panelists will share their varied experiences as a donor, grant funder, and small grass-roots nonprofit.

Participants will gain a new perspective for fundraising that promotes inclusion and diversity while recognizing the gaps that currently exist in fundraising.
