United Way Association of SC, SC Grantmakers Network and Together SC are joining together to host weekly 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.
Weekly calls will happen each Wednesday from 9:00 am to 9:45 am.
The SC Department of Education will discuss and provide us with updates on feeding and e-learning efforts in our state's schools.
Thank you to our guest speakers!
