Inclusive Economic Prosperity

The Council, The Spartanburg County Foundation, and the Southeastern Council of Foundations spent a day and a half convening in the South to focus on community philanthropy''s potential as an engine for inclusive community and economic development.

Community development improves lives and builds prosperity by maximizing the potential of a place. Combine this with the role of catalyzing and raising resources from a community on behalf of a community, a Community Foundation can capitalize on its unique role as a convener, grantmaker, and endowment builder for greater community prosperity with simple practices taken from community and economic development strategies.
