MESSAGE FROM OUR LEADERSHIP

Dear Friends of the SouthCoast Community Foundation, Over the course of last year and into 2022, we have kept our finger on the pulse of community needs within the Southeastern Massachusetts region to stay on top of how COVID-19 has impacted the lives of our most vulnerable residents and nonprofit, community, and business partners within our South Coast 41 cities and towns. And as part of our mission, we are continually revisiting our role to ensure our region is inclusive, welcoming, and equitable for all who live, work, and learn here. Consequently, we continued our emergency response to meet this important responsibility, and our institutional commitment to advancing racial equity and social justice is the lens through which we have and are focused on our three strategic priorities: • Arts and creativity for a vibrant and inclusive region • Education success for youth and adult learners • Economic sustainability and workforce opportunity We also welcomed new partners for change in this region with the establishment of the Mayflower Fund, which will provide $27 million over ten years to build inclusive, equitable, and diverse employment, training, and supply chain opportunities related to the offshore wind industry. None of this would have been possible without your continued trust and support in us as your philanthropic partner. We are committed to keeping our finger on the pulse of the community’s needs and learning what touches, moves, and inspires you for change in this region. Our door is always open.

LINDA BODENMANN, BOARD CHAIR

LEONARD M. LEE, PRESIDENT & CEO

EMERGENCY RESPONSE

During 2021, we continued to provide COVID-19 pandemic relief and awarded more than $2.8 million to 50 nonprofits through our SouthCoast Emergency Response Fund to address vaccine equity and hesitancy, operational needs for arts & culture, economic, and education-focused nonprofits, and basic needs, such as food security, emergency childcare, housing, technology for remote work or school, transportation, and utilities. The awarded funds were made possible, in part, by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development.

In Fall 2021, the Gateway Cities Legislative Caucus toured Attleboro, Fall River, and New Bedford to learn firsthand the issues facing these communities due to the pandemic. The tour, hosted by co-chairs House Representative Tony Cabral and Senator Neal Lesser, brought civic leaders together on September 20th at The Whaling Museum. Representing the Community Foundation, Director of Engagement, Sarah Rose, shared important lessons learned from our COVID Emergency Response work which swiftly raised and distributed aid to the most vulnerable communities and regional nonprofits experiencing the detrimental impact of the crisis.

RACIAL EQUITY

“The SouthCoast Community Foundation has an opportunity to make a forceful case for racial equity by explaining the challenges, highlighting the areas of opportunity, and taking bold action to embed racial equity MARIA A. ROSARIO, BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND into our organization, our work, into RACIAL EQUITY WORKING GROUP MEMBER our community’s fabric, and more importantly, into our personal growth. Only by actively renewing the social contract, starting with a race-conscious approach at the Foundation, can we begin to address the impact of rising inequality and damaging social disparities and help our communities heal.” Last year we made two significant steps in our journey to become an anti-racist organization and embrace the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. First, we launched the Leadership Equity Fund to award grants to nonprofit organizations working to end racism and run by leaders who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and to support the professional development and advancement of nonprofit employees who identify as BIPOC.

SouthCoast Community Foundation

Second, we worked both internally and with an outside consultant, Strategy Matters, to begin to understsand how racial inequities and inequality impact all of our lives and to start to make change in the way we do business so that we put racial equity specifically, and diversity, equity and inclusion, more broadly at the center of all that we do. This is work that continued throughout all of 2021 and we still have much to do. We are committed to this effort and look forward to updating you on our progress in the future.


LEADERSHIP EQUITY FUND The Leadership Equity Fund awarded $110,340 in total last year. The first grant round was awarded to the New Bedford Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and YWCA Southeastern Massachusetts. The YWCA has a three-year plan to strengthen and extend equitable practices amongst Boards across the South Coast so that they will become more diverse, inclusive, and equitable. The NAACP also has a three-year plan to train NAACP members and others by developing workshops, hiring a communications specialist, and building infrastructure to support ongoing outreach. The second grant round went to BAMSI for their BIPOC Leadership Path program, Buy Black NB for operations and administrative support, Coaching4Change in support of their CEO and plans for expansion; and the New Bedford Whaling Museum for their Equity in Leadership program. Discussing the importance of the fund and reflecting on her own experiences, our Vice-Chair Gail Fortes wrote a personal essay, The Journey to Equity is Hard. Start by Looking Within, which was published in the local media outlet, New Bedford Light.

“The Leadership Equity Fund grant will further enhance our advocacy work on behalf of communities of color while advancing our footprint, platform, and underserved communities.” DR. LASELLA HALL, PRESIDENT NEW BEDFORD BRANCH, NAACP

GRANTEE STORY:

Marquis Taylor, Founder & CEO of Coaching4Change GROWING AS A LEADER

“There is a whole ecosystem of support within the school system that plays a part in how kids grow up, whether they go to college and explore career paths. This training has helped me talk and enlighten upper school management about race, social issues, and personal beliefs without resulting in hurt feelings. Having the ability to navigate tough conversations around diversity, equity, and inclusion is key. Everyone is ready to engage and wants to see things change, but there is a lot of listening, learning, and shedding of perceptions that need to take place. I’m glad I’m in a better position to help.” When Marquis Taylor grew up in South Central LA, he struggled in school. However, he was a strong athlete, which provided him with access to resources and support. His coaches and mentors helped him build his confidence and stay out of trouble enabling him to enjoy a very successful academic life. Marquis recognized that he was very fortunate and that many other kids from his neighborhood were a drift through the system.

But Marquis’ work doesn’t stop there. It’s more than just working with the kids but collaborating with school administration. Coaching4Change provides schools with additional support staff to help improve student’s attendance, behavior, and engagement. Staffing shortages contribute to whether young people get the support they need to thrive, which was particularly critical during the pandemic.

Inspired to do something about this imbalance, in 2010, while in graduate school, Taylor started Coaching4Change. Based out of Taunton, his organization connects K-12 and college students with mentors, often college students themselves. Marquis believes “college students want to make a difference. Those with shared experiences are particularly effective in encouraging and connecting with students. Helping them to navigate conflict resolution, celebrating small wins, and coaching them to bring their best selves to the school community.”

Marquis’ Leadership Equity grant from the Community Foundation enabled him to tap resources and training that strengthened his leadership and diplomacy skills helping him effectively partner with the schools and navigate tough conversations.

ARTS AND CREATIVITY

Arts and Culture are essential to our region’s quality of life. Arts are not a “nice to have” but rather a “must-have“ as a social and economic driver for our region. We are proud to invest in art and culturally focused nonprofits that are community-based and use the arts to challenge, inspire, and change lives. Our Creative SouthCoast Initiative, which began in 2017, specifically focuses on Fall River and New Bedford attracting and motivating local philanthropy to prioritize the arts. The work of the initiative has included support for city-wide initiatives, public art, capacity building for small nonprofits, increased access for youth, and the celebration and elevation of culturally diverse creativity.

Here are highlights from 2021:

BUILDING BLOCK COHORT The SouthCoast Community Foundation focuses on capacity building through a working group we call “Building Blocks.” The Cohort is comprised of 12 local arts organizations from the New Bedford and Fall River area whose annual revenue are $250,000 or less. Bolstering these smaller nonprofits was based on their fiscal standing but also on their plans to revitalize the area with visual and performing arts and art therapy, bringing culturally diverse creativity into these communities, and increasing access for youth. Through workshops, convening, technical assistance, and grantmaking, we have seen these organizations evolve. By deepening financial support and forming a learning community where successes and challenges are shared, the capacity of each participating cohort member is continually enhanced.

FALL RIVER CULTURAL PLAN

GET OUT AND ART

The Fall River Arts and Culture Coalition (FRACC), is committed to improving the lives of the people that live and work in the Fall River area. In late 2021, the Coalition launched the city’s first Arts & Culture Plan, which was sponsored by the One SouthCoast Chamber with support from the Community Foundation. This multi-year plan fosters a vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable creative economy in the city that is activating creative artists and arts organizations to rebuild the downtown in Fall River.

This was the third summer of our GET OUT AND ART program, partnering with the New Bedford Housing Authority as part of our Creative SouthCoast Initiative to bring community arts programs into residential neighborhoods. Three programs, run by the New Bedford Art Museum, Dream Out Loud, and NB Creative with Rhonda Fazio, made a lot of art with a lot of young people this summer.

GRANTEE STORY:

Keri Cox, President of 3rdEyE Youth Unlimited POISED TO REORGANIZE AND REBUILD THROUGH CAPACITY BUILDING Being the president of a small nonprofit made up entirely of volunteers can sometimes be daunting. Moving the organization forward, securing program funding, and ensuring dayto-day operations run smoothly rests on their shoulders. That’s why Keri Cox found participating in the Building Blocks Cohort, a program of our Creative SouthCoast Initiative, rewarding and critical for the continued success of her organization, 3rd EyE Unlimited. As its president, Keri has represented the organization in the cohort for the last three years and engaged in the breadth of financial support, community building, mentoring, and resources we made available to help strengthen her skillset and, ultimately, the infrastructure of 3rd EyE. Last year was a turning point for the organization. Known for its youth empowerment programming through hip-hop, the team knew that it had to make some changes to survive the pandemic. A new strategic plan was developed to keep the nonprofit sustainable. Cox knew that to help bring the organization to the next level and make their new strategy actionable, she needed to dedicate her time to the plan instead of the day-to-day operations. She also needed some coaching since the process was new territory.

14

SouthCoast Community Foundation

The tight-knit 3rd Eye team was able to support Keri and take on many of her responsibilities and the Community Foundation matched Keri up with strategist and consultant Jay Vogt. Through Jay’s organized and thoughtful mentoring approach, Keri moved forward with their new strategy, developed action plans, and funded several new project hires enabling core team members to focus on priorities instead of being spread too thin. Today, thanks to her team, Keri’s hard work, and Jay’s guidance they are poised to reorganize, rebuild, and invest in their operation, allowing them to stay relevant to the New Bedford youth they serve, the very heart of the organization. “Jay has been my nonprofit therapist,” remarked Keri. “We wouldn’t have been able to move the organization forward without his guidance and the unwavering support of the Community Foundation.”


EDUCATION SUCCESS

At the heart of improving the quality of life for those in our region is creating strong educational programs and opportunities. From early literacy to college scholarships and services to ongoing professional development, the need is extensive. Here are highlights from 2021:

ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP RECEPTIONS

GEORGE C. DECAS SCHOLARSHIP FUND

In May, we held a virtual awards reception for the Jacobs Family New Bedford High Schools Scholarships which awarded $175,000 to five New Bedford students: Addylene Darosa Semedo, Annie Lin, and Linh Dan Nguyen from New Bedford High School; Jocelyn Kingman from Global Learning Charter Public School, and Moriah Markman from Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School.

William C. Decas established a new scholarship fund in memory of his late brother, Attorney George C. Decas. The George C. Decas Scholarship Fund will provide awards to graduating high school seniors residing in Wareham, Massachusetts. Awards of $20,000 will be made annually starting in 2022 during the Community Foundation scholarship season and can support recipients over four years. This new fund joins an additional Decas fund with the Community Foundation, the Georgia and Constantine Decas Family Scholarship Fund, established by William and his sister, Katharina Decas, in 2020. The Decas family is an exemplary model of what it means to give back and we are humbled to help them with their philanthropic goals in supporting the educational dreams of Wareham students.

In July, local students gathered at the Buttonwood Park Zoo for the SouthCoast Community Foundation scholarship reception to receive their awards totaling $547,255. Eighty-four recipients were chosen from a pool of more than 600 high school seniors and college students from throughout the region, representing 24 different educational institutions.

“George, sister Katharina, and I were all raised and educated in Wareham. We were fortunate that our parents could afford to send us to college, but we know that many are not in the same position. We are so pleased to have the help of the Community Foundation to honor our parents and our late brother George in this way, providing well-earned financial support to the youth of Wareham.” WILLIAM DECAS FINGER ON THE PULSE / SOUTHCOAST COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

ADVANCING EQUITABLE OUTCOMES In preparation for the 2022 Scholarship season, the Community Foundation spent the remainder of the year evaluating the scholarship application process to meet donor intentions while advancing equitable outcomes for the region’s students across multiple dimensions of difference; specifically, race, ethnicity, and gender. We look forward to sharing with you the results of these improvements in next year’s report.

EARLY EDUCATION AND CHILD CARE Across the South Coast region, there are approximately 50,000 children under the age of five but only 20,000 child care slots, translating roughly into 2.5 children for every slot. This lags the state, with two children for every slot. Scarcity is only one aspect of a multilayered issue plaguing the early education and child care system and only one example of how the South Coast region is trailing the state. To deepen the Community Foundation’s understanding of the topic it took several steps in 2021 toward making early education and child care a significant focus for the organization. We participated in two-panel discussions, the One SouthCoast Chamber Early Childhood Education Summit, and the newly formed MA Early Childhood Funders Collaborative. In addition, we commissioned a report produced in partnership with the Center for State Policy Analysis at Tufts University. The Expanding Early Education and Child Care Opportunities (EECCO) report provides a rigorous assessment of the Community Foundation catchment area using the best available data and supplemented by 21 interviews with regional experts and thought leaders. The report is available in three languages and can be found on our website.

DONOR STORY:

Nancy and Jack Braitmayer Fund for Innovative Educational Excellence SUPPORTING STUDENT SUCCESS

“The Community Foundation is an essential asset to the South Coast community at large and a driving force behind issues I care about….” ERIC BRAITMAYER

Eric Braitmayer grew up appreciating the power of philanthropy. His parents, Nancy and Jack, raised him and his two sisters in a culture of giving back. They are incredibly active in the community, volunteering and providing funding for local educational institutions, initiatives, and school supplies through their personal giving and on a national level through their family foundation. His parents continue to this day to be an inspiration. “I’ve always admired my parents’ generosity and their life-long dedication to improving educational outcomes,” reflected Eric. “While they are still alive to appreciate its impact, I wanted to create a fund with an education focus in their honor. However, I didn’t want the heavy administrative lift that is required in a private foundation.” Eric chose the Community Foundation for this reason but also because he felt the Foundation is “an essential asset to the South Coast community at large and a driving force behind issues I care about. Also, partnering with the Community Foundation means I don’t have to worry which direction future generations might take the fund. Their stewardship will be long lasting.”

Recognizing his good fortune of quality education and the opportunities that came with it, Eric wanted to find a way to help others who do not have the same access or support. Initially, Eric discussed setting up a traditional, tuition-focused scholarship that we were happy to create. However, through our consultation, he became aware of other needs like college and career mentoring, academic tutoring, and financial management training to help individuals finish college and transition into a productive career. Eric was immediately drawn to the issue and wanted our help to address it. As a result, Eric shifted the fund’s focus from tuition to services that support student success by meeting basic needs and teaching life skills. Commenting on the experience, he said, “the Community Foundation listened to what I wanted to do, shared with me what is happening in the community, and together we came to a powerful solution. I would have missed this pressing need had the Community Foundation done what I asked, no questions asked.”

ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY AND WORKFORCE OPPORTUNITY

Dovetailing education and arts & culture is the need to remove obstacles and increase our community members’ success in the economic realm. Our work in this area is growing and currently involves immigration support, workforce development, and career readiness.

Here are highlights from 2021:

THE MAYFLOWER FUND Mayflower Wind secured a state award to supply Massachusetts with offshore wind energy which in turn means a significant commitment to local workforce and economic development through their newly created fund with the Community Foundation. The company will devote $27 million over ten years to the Mayflower Fund, to build inclusive, equitable, and diverse employment, training, and supply chain opportunities related to the offshore wind industry. This exciting initiative is an opportunity for the South Coast to flourish and we are thrilled to be a partner to Mayflower Wind, providing a bridge to the communities the Foundation serves.

18

SouthCoast Community Foundation

“To truly succeed we need strong partnerships with organizations such as the SouthCoast Community Foundation, who truly understand the needs of the community, to ensure we are fostering a just transition toward a sustainable energy future.” MICHAEL BROWN, CEO, MAYFLOWER WIND LLC


POLAROID FUND The Polaroid Fund is dedicated to New Bedford workforce development and literacy programming, and awarded $97,000 to nine local nonprofits in April, including The Arc of Bristol County, Community Economic Development Center of Southeastern MA, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts, Inc., Marion Institute, New Bedford Art Museum/ArtWorks!, Portuguese United for Education d/b/a Discovery Language Academy, School on Wheels, United Interfaith Action of Southeastern Massachusetts, and YWCA of Southeastern MA.

“The Polaroid Grant enables us to make significant progress on our multiyear effort to improve the educational experience for all our students and increase access to good jobs and sustainable living in New Bedford. This includes our work with community leaders throughout the South Coast and in a statewide coalition to reverse the current, restrictive admissions policy of vocational schools so English learners, students of color, students with disabilities, and students that are economically disadvantaged have an equal opportunity to pursue this path of learning.” ANDREA SHEPPARD LOMBA, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, UNITED INTERFAITH ACTION OF SOUTHEASTERN MA.

LEGACY GIVING

Estate and planned gifts through the SouthCoast Community Foundation are an excellent way to establish a charitable legacy. Our expertise and passion for change in this region make us the ideal partner for charitable donors looking to invest in our community in perpetuity. Two funds were established this last year that will have a lasting impact:

EDITH B. WISLOCKI FUND Edith Wislocki named SouthCoast Community Foundation in her will and signed the necessary paperwork to create a field of interest fund that will preserve open space in Rehoboth and Bristol County and support nonprofits that have animals central to their mission.

20

SouthCoast Community Foundation

SUZANNE AND SHARON AREIAS ANIMAL WELFARE FUND This donor-advised fund is focused on animals. The primary area of interest will be to assist in the cost of spaying and neutering and was created by Dr. Sharon Areias Trahan in memory of her late sister and parents. Sharon intends to contribute to the fund annually and has also named The Foundation in her will.


DONOR STORY:

Henry H. Crapo Fund

A LEGACY OF GENEROSITY

“Moving our family foundation to the Community Foundation has amplified the impact of our grantmaking investment. Not only did we gain their administrative and financial expertise, but our ability to support the community in perpetuity is safeguarded. Being part of the SouthCoast Community Foundation family, we retain the power of grant-making, but our ability to be effective grant makers is strengthened significantly by the Community Foundation unparalleled community outreach and relationships. Their insights provide us with information about what is going on in the community, where the needs are, and who is doing what to meet them. We simply would not have that on our own.” JOHN BULLARD & PETER C. BULLARD, FUND ADVISORS TO HENRY H. CRAPO FOUNDATION FUND, JAMES ARNOLD FUND, AND MARY MORLEY CRAPO HYDE ECCLES FUND

Equitable college admissions and addressing hunger in the South Coast region. Just two examples of critical work that will benefit from a legacy of generosity and how the Henry H. Crapo Foundation Fund is supporting critical work taking place in the Greater New Bedford region. A total of $160,000 from the Fund was awarded to 15 organizations to support their civic, educational, and charitable projects.

Lawyer Henry H. Crapo, born in Dartmouth and lived for many years in New Bedford, Massachusetts, established the Henry H. Crapo Foundation Fund to support civic, educational, and charitable projects in New Bedford and neighboring towns. Originally a private family foundation, it was moved to the Community Foundation to manage in 2010.

CONVENING

To better understand the needs of our communities, and champion pressing issues or emerging opportunities we often convene subject matter experts, nonprofit leaders, and philanthropic-minded donors. We also come together to celebrate one another and the work we accomplish in collaboration with our community partners. FUNDERS’ TOURS

SUMMER’S LAST BLAST

Over this last year, we moved from in-person tours to webinars. On March 31st, we held a virtual session to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare and public health. On June 30th, we held a second tour focused on Building Blocks for a Sustainable Community. On October 26th, we hosted a case study for supporting the arts with funders and creative leaders to discuss the impact arts and culture can have on urban centers and communities, specifically in New Bedford and Fall River.

Every year we hold our annual Summer’s Last Blast celebration at the very beginning of September. Last year, we were able to gather in person with our community friends and partners to celebrate the work we’ve done together. More than 400 guests joined us for a delightful evening under a beautiful and starry night in South Dartmouth.

PRESIDENT JOHN VASCONCELLOS RETIREMENT In December, we said goodbye to retiring President, John Vasconcellos. Thanks to his dedication and leadership, we have a Community Foundation that our region deserves, that attracts philanthropy, and elevates the needs and opportunities within our community. John is responsible for leaving the organization well-positioned for the future and continuing our mission under Leonard M. Lee, our new President and CEO.

DONOR STORY:

Dr. Gilbert and Timmy Shapiro

LIFELONG ANNUAL FUND SUPPORTERS

Gilbert and Timmy Shapiro moved to the South Coast area in the early 1960’s, to set up Dr. Shapiro’s Orthopedic practice. Given he was in the medical field, Dr. Shapiro was naturally focused on being helpful to community members, especially historically excluded populations. He often found that many of his patients suffering from industrial accidents struggled to cover their expenses and take care of themselves when out of work. So, when he learned that a Community Foundation was being formed in 1995, he and his wife saw an opportunity to do more for their neighbors and get involved. The community-minded Shapiro’s generous support to institutions and causes has long been felt in Massachusetts and the Community Foundation counts itself as extremely fortunate to have had their involvement in the organization since its very inception, including Dr. Shapiro being a past Board Chair. Timmy is no longer with us, but her

generosity lives on in Gilbert and their children. Commented Dr. Shapiro, “The Community Foundation is supporting organizations in this region to help good, hard-working people who deserve whatever assistance we can provide. It is simply the right thing to do and why our family has enthusiastically donated annually to help the Foundation successfully carry out its mission year in and year out.”

RECOGNITION

HOCKOMOCK CHAIR AWARD

ONE SOUTHCOAST APEX AWARD

We were honored to receive the Hockomock YMCA Chair Award for outstanding leadership, dedication, and passion for working with the YMCA and enriching the quality of life in the Hockomock community, which encompasses Foxboro, Franklin, Mansfield, and North Attleboro. Hockomock Board Chair Mary Clermont commented, “Our impact in 2020 would not have been possible without (the Community Foundation’s) incredible partnership.” The Hockomock Area YMCA received $315,000 from our SouthCoast Emergency Response Fund to support their innovative response to families challenged with food insecurity.

South Coast business owners, employees, and residents recognize local organizations for demonstrating creativity in their development, growth, and dedication to the community by nominating them for the prestigious accolade, One SouthCoast Apex Award. We were humbled to be a recipient and honored to be recognized for our work addressing the impact of the pandemic.

Thank you Hockomock YMCA and One SouthCoast Chamber!
