Summer 2023 Issue of Inspiration Now Available!

The latest issue of Inspiration, Philanthropy Southeast’s quarterly magazine, is now available in print and online. Stories covered in the Summer 2023 issue include:

  • A look at Drawdown Georgia, a coalition led by five family foundations in the state, and it support for work that addresses climate change and its inequitable impacts.
  • Checkin in with the inaugural cohort of the Accelerating Equity Learning Collaborative, whose members are halfway through a journey focused on transforming themselves and their organizations.
  • A conversation with philanthropic leaders and experts on the importance of listening and feedback.
  • An interview with the Cone Health Foundation's Susan Shumaker, who discusses the foundation's role in supporting Medicaid expansion in North Carolina

This issue also includes an opening message from Janine Lee and a roundup of the latest hires and appointments from members across the region.

This year, we’ve expanded our Inspiration mailing list to better share stories of philanthropy’s work in the region. Each member organization receives at least one print copy of Inspiration, with additional copies sent to other senior leaders, program staff and Hull Fellows alumni.
