Experience the 2020 Annual Meeting – Again, or for the First Time!


This November, more than 400 philanthropic leaders from across the region and the nation gathered online for an event like no other: SECF’s 51st Annual Meeting.

Today, all SECF members can experience this unique event – recordings of sessions from this year’s Annual Meeting are now posted at the SECF.org program archive!

This year’s Annual Meeting was the first in SECF’s history to be offered virtually, providing attendees the opportunity to interact with one another in real-time during a robust lineup of speakers and sessions, including keynotes from Harvard’s Dr. David Williams and ABFE President Susan Taylor Batten. Attendees also hear from Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law – recently announced as the newest selection for our Chair’s Book Club!

The Annual Meeting agenda drew on this year’s most pressing issues – public health, economic inequality and inequity, and the fight for racial justice – to explore a diverse set of topics relevant to grantmakers throughout the region, including place-based grantmaking, investment strategy, foundation culture, evaluation, mentorship and more!
