Summer 2021 Issue of Inspiration Magazine Now Available!

SECF members now have access to the latest issue of Inspiration, SECF’s quarterly magazine dedicated to sharing stories of philanthropy’s impact in communities across the region. Here’s what you can look forward to in the latest issue:

  • A look at a partnership between the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta and the Southern Poverty Law Center to help boost voter turnout and ballot access in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana.
  • In Arkansas, leaders at three different foundations have built a new collaborative organization that is not only connecting Black philanthropic leaders with one another, but also helping direct support to Black-serving and Black-led nonprofits.
  • Foundations are working to promote active and engaged communities by supporting local media, which has struggled to survive amid consolidation in the industry and competition from the internet.
  • A Q&A interview with Jessie Ball duPont Fund President Mari Kuraishi, who reflects on her experiences since stepping into her role two years ago.

Each issue of Inspiration also includes a message from SECF President & CEO Janine Lee, a review of new staff and trustees in the region, and an introduction to our latest members.

A copy of Inspiration is mailed to each of our member offices. You can also access a PDF of the issue by logging in to!
