Southeastern Council of Foundations 2011-2012 Annual Report

Southern Giving

W e can’t see the future, but

there are some things we know. Philanthropy is more individualized ­— and more public — than it’s ever been before. Fortunately, it’s also more professional and more relevant to

more people

than in generations past. The Southeastern Council of Foundations and its members are always looking to the new horizon, the next wave, and the path to forge as we travel into the future. But we also realize that the key to achieving that next horizon is to honor and learn from our past, combining earned wisdom and innovation to move boldly forward into our future.


ear Friends and Colleagues,

It’s been an amazing year at SECF. As you’ll read on the following pages, we’ve taken stock of ourselves, delivered programs and opportunities that are among the highest caliber in the field of philanthropy, and continued to deliver and build on the services our members value. But what a list of annual accomplishments cannot appropriately convey is the commitment, passion, loyalty and enthusiasm that you, as SECF members, have shown. Throughout 2012, you have given countless hours, considerable wisdom and generous support to make our organization one of the strongest and most effective and most innovative associations of grantmakers in the country.

As you peruse the pages of this annual report, we hope you will

take great pride in all we have accomplished together in the past year. But more importantly, we hope that you will continue to play a role in helping to shape the future of SECF as we travel toward philanthropy’s next horizon.

ur Mission:

SECF serves, connects, strengthens and champions philanthropy and the philanthropic infrastructure in the South.

A ny worthwhile journey begins with careful study of the landscape and

proper preparation. In 2012, SECF made several decisive moves to pave our way. Connecting with Our Core Southeastern Council of Foundations

Member Survey Report 1

Approximately one-third of SECF members responded to the 2012 Member Survey.

Nothing is more important than our relationship with you, our members. In 2012, we conducted a comprehensive member survey to determine what members want most from membership in SECF. The survey results showed that members value connectivity and networking above all else, followed closely by professional development experiences. While the survey validated many of our current programs and services, SECF board and staff will use the results to shape future offerings.

Grantmaker Networking Education Expanding Philanthropy


Gov't relations


Strategic Thinking In 2012, the SECF Board of Trustees took a fresh look at our three-year strategic plan. As a result, the plan was amended and extended through 2015. New focuses in the plan include bridging the gap in current SECF programming between emerging leaders and CEOs, building knowledge that enriches individuals’ experience and advances SECF members’ missions. The updated strategic plan also pays increased

attention to SECF’s role in increasing awareness of philanthropy, promoting its role and purpose and actively defending its independence. As part of this goal, SECF will concentrate on developing resources for members to use, demonstrating how foundations lead and participate in improving community, championing the legitimacy and independence of foundations, and facilitating balanced discussions on significant issues in which philanthropy is engaged.

Growing Involvement SECF’s current and future strength is rooted in our membership. In order to achieve our mission, we work hard to attract new members and more deeply engage existing members. Launched by SECF Chairman Karen McNeill-Miller, the 2012 “Just One” campaign encouraged current members to reach out to “just one” foundation and connect them to SECF. As a result, 37 new members joined our ranks in 2012.


SECF President & CEO Janine Lee made membership a priority, traveling to eight states to build on three visits in 2011 to share the word about SECF and make personal connections with dozens of members and potential members throughout the region. SECF members took responsibility for our organization’s success in a big way in 2012, with nearly 100 involved in committees, task forces and other leadership roles.

embership by the Numbers:

SECF Member Organizations 331 Individuals served 2330

Thanks to the individualized outreach and recruitment efforts of Chairman Karen McNeil-Miller’s “Just One” campaign, SECF welcomed 37 new members during the past year.

Recognizing new opportunities that appear on the

horizon, knowing when and how to transform experience into best practices, and seeing the value of relationships: all of these require training and skill. That’s why SECF provided a wealth of learning and engagement for members in 2012. Professional Development Foundation staff and trustees across the region look to SECF to provide high-quality, relevant professional development experiences, and the past year provided a number of opportunities. More than 650 people joined together at the 2011 Annual Meeting at Amelia Island, Florida and at the 2012 Annual Meeting in Charleston, South Carolina — two of the largest turnouts in recent years. This annual event is SECF’s flagship, but the many smaller, more intimate gatherings are also popular. The past year included: • CEO Leadership Forum •F  amily Foundations Forum

•C  onference on Investing •E  ssential Skills & Strategies for Grantmakers •M  ore than 30 webinars and teleconferences on topics ranging from aging to advocacy, and from grants administration to financial analysis. • T wo Grantmaking School courses, including Grant Financial Analysis and Advanced Proposal Analysis •Southeast Family Office Forum And of course, the Hull Fellows program remained strong, welcoming its 10th class at the 2011 annual meeting and its 11th class in

2012. The 2011 Annual Meeting included a first for the Hull Fellows — the presentation of Capstone Projects completed in small groups. These provided a way for Hull Fellows to connect to the membership at large and create new conversations around their ideas. In 2012, Capstone Presentations were captured and presented on video throughout the Annual Meeting.

Public Policy

Affinity Groups SECF members share many different interests. Through SECF, they gather to discuss and explore common areas of challenge and possibility. In 2012, Health Legacy Foundations met in Charlotte to talk about their roles in community change. The EngAGEment Initiative, which focuses on the ways in which aging populations will change communities, hosted nearly a dozen webinars in the past year and produced a new set of state fact sheets about how aging populations are changing demographics.

This past year also saw the beginnings of a new Working Group on Poverty, created in response to presentations by Claire Gaudiani and Linetta Gilbert at the 2011 Annual Meeting. After a meeting to discuss potential structures and approaches, this group of members plans to maintain an active network for sharing best practices in addressing poverty. SECF also supports geographically focused affinity groups, such as Georgia Grantmakers Alliance and Grantmakers of Kentucky, both of which convened statewide meetings during 2012.


In the 2012 member survey, public policy emerged as a strong area of interest among many SECF members. The past year saw several new and exciting developments on that front, including the launch of a pilot program with the Council on Foundations (COF) to deliver “Foundations 101� training to Congressional staff members in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina and Arkansas about the field of philanthropy. SECF also worked with COF to arrange and conduct three site visits of foundation-led or funded

projects throughout the region. To help give members the tools and skills they need to be effective advocates on behalf of their own institutions and the broader field, SECF conducted a Public Policy Institute in conjunction wtih the 2012 annual meeting. In addition to these new activities, 36 SECF members attended Foundations on the Hill, in cooperation with the Council on Foundations and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, to help educate national policymakers about actions that might affect philanthropy. SECF members also participated in two legislative update teleconferences throughout the year.

News and Stories that Further Philanthropy SECF members stay connected through our print and internet vehicles. In our 2012 survey, Interchange, our bi-monthly print newsletter once again scored high in readership and sharing, as did our bi-weekly e-newsletter, Connections. In addition, members received weekly program updates via Southeastern Grant-

maker’s Weekly and our ever-expanding presence on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Especially exciting in 2012 were the creation of a new Annual Meeting e-magazine and SECF’s new meeting app. The app was developed for the 2012 Annual Meeting, but can be used for any SECF event going forward.

Our Deepest Connections Every year, there are SECF members who go above and beyond in supporting our organization. They make their gifts with no direct benefit to themselves or their foundations, but their gifts make it possible for all of the SECF family to enjoy richer programming, more information and a stronger voice for our field.
