2020 Annual Report: Tested, Resilient and Ready
Author: Southeastern Council of Foundations
2020 was a year that tested us like never before.
Our homes became our offices… and some of our home offices became classrooms.
We sheltered in place… but turned out to vote in record numbers.
We covered our faces… but raised our voices to fight for racial justice.
In philanthropy, we experienced moments of doubt, disbelief and pain – but also moments of determination, inspiration and innovation.
At SECF, we learned a lot – about the power of philanthropy, about the dedication of SECF members to their communities and about our own ability to adapt, grow and meet the needs of this unique moment.
