Event Details

The United Way Association of SC, SC Grantmakers Network and Together SC join together to host calls for our philanthropic colleagues.

Our goal is to share what's happening across the state and to lift up and inspire philanthropic partnerships, locally and statewide.

These calls take place on Wednesdays from 9:00 to 9:45am.

This Wednesday, June 10th:

Facing Race Together: "I Am Not Alright"

Darrin Goss, president and CEO of the Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina and Madeleine McGee, Together SC preident, will discuss Darrin's recent letter, “I am not alright.”  This open and honest letter appeared in the June 8th edition of For Good Connections.

In it, Darrin generously shares with us his personal reactions to recent events and the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. 

He makes the case for equity rather than equality, and implores white people to speak up and act now. 

Wednesday's conversation will also discuss the role and opportunities for the philanthropic community to step up and lead.

Join us to share your thoughts and learn how you can be part of healing 400 years of oppression.

It will take an unrelenting commitment from all of us.

Guest Speaker:

Darrin Goss
