Funding Success for Children of Color
The programs that we design and operate, as nonprofit staff and board members, will create the conditions for a six-year old child of color to navigate through their childhood, graduate from high school, and ultimately find success in the SC workforce and economy. [As evidenced by median income and quality of life (housing, health and environmental success metrics )]
Join us for a facilitated conversation between nonprofit program staff, advocates and community organizers whose work impact communities of color across SC..
During this workshop, we will participate in a group exercise using the Kellogg Logic Model as a theory of change; and participate in role plays about the best way to communicate our success and pivots to funding partners and donors.
The Critical Question: Will the current investments (human and financial) made to SC nonprofits yield positive impact for children and communities of color? There will be a facilitated conversation about how we 1. Define program success- using an equity lens; 2. Plan our program work with intentional efforts to address social determinants tied to race; and 3. Track and report our progress and pivots to funders and stakeholders.
We will explore what is possible TODAY to improve the future for children of color, as we review the historic implications of race on (in) equitable education funding and supportive services to SC communities of color.
