Frequently Asked Questions:

Health & Safety FAQ:

The health and safety of our attendees, staff and contracted support is our top priority. Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 (at least two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) or a negative COVID test from the past 48 hours is required to attend any Annual Meeting functions. We will be collecting this information at our registration desk. The following will be accepted as proof of vaccination:

  • A CDC-issued vaccination card (a photo or scan of your card is acceptable)
  • Paper or electronic vaccination record from a health care provider/pharmacy
  • Vaccination record from a smartphone app (e.g. Clear) that has access to your health records

If you are providing a negative COVID test result, it must be from a test conducted within 48 hours of your arrival. Either a paper copy or a PDF is acceptable.

If you cannot provide either of these, we will have a limited number of rapid, self-administered COVID tests available on-site and can also direct you toward local testing options. If supply levels allow, rapid tests will also be available to attendees throughout the event.

Wearing a mask or face covering will be optional. Even if you do not plan on wearing a mask, we encourage you to bring one with you in the event of a spike in cases. You may also wish to wear a mask for some elements of our agenda during which social distancing may not be possible. If you would prefer to wear a mask for the entire event, you are encouraged to do so! N95 or KN95 masks will be available on-site, along with hand sanitizer.

This year's Annual Meeting has an attendance limit in line with previous gatherings. While it is possible for the meeting to sell out, we expect this year's conference to be similar in size to the last time we met in Amelia Island in 2016.

All Annual Meeting registrants will be required to present either proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test from the past 48 hours before attending any Annual Meeting functions. Speakers and staff will also be subject to this requirement.

All attendees will be required each day to complete a brief questionnaire asking whether they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who has the virus. We will also perform a temperature check using a forehead thermometer. Depending on the results of the questionnaire and your temperature, you may not be allowed to attend.

In addition to the questionnaire, our event registration process will require that, in order to attend, you agree to hold harmless Philanthropy Southeast, its vendors or our venues in the event of a COVID-19 diagnosis following the event.

All Annual Meeting registrants will be required to present either proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test from the past 48 hours before attending any Annual Meeting functions. Speakers and staff will also be subject to this requirement.

We encourage all our attendees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Visit the CDC’s site to learn more about vaccinations and to find vaccination sites near you.

Contact the Philanthropy Southeast staff to let them know you will be unable to attend, and we will be happy to issue you a full refund. You can also transfer your registration to another person within your organization at no extra charge.

Online Annual Meeting FAQ:


All keynote, plenary and breakout sessions will be streamed live via our virtual conference platform. No later than one week before the Annual Meeting, you will receive instructions on how to access and use this platform.

During sessions, you will be able to chat in real-time with other online attendees. Depending on format, some general and breakout sessions will also allow time for online attendees to ask questions.

The rest of your Annual Meeting experience will take place on the SECF Mobile App! Open only to SECF members, the Mobile App is where you will:

  • View session presentations and materials
  • View speaker bios
  • Chat with all attendees via direct, 1-to-1 messages
  • Connect with colleagues via group chats
  • Discuss Annual Meeting topics and more on Member Forums
  • Complete post-session surveys and evaluations
  • And more!

When the Annual Meeting ends, your experience with the Mobile App will have just begun! It will be your year-round companion for all things SECF, allowing you to bring the benefits of membership wherever you go!

Philanthropy Southeast's Code of Conduct 

Philanthropy Southeast is composed of a broad and diverse membership of grantmakers. At our core, we are a community of grantmakers connecting with each other to improve the practice of grantmaking in the Southeast.

At our meetings and events, we also welcome visitors from other organizations – which are not members – that participate as presenters or participants. We strives to create a comfortable place for all Members, visitors, and others engaged in philanthropy to exchange experiences and ideas and engage in conversations that are welcoming and of benefit to all participants. As such, Philanthropy Southeast is not a venue for grant seekers, fundraisers, or other types of charitable solicitations during any of its meetings, events or through its publications nor is it an appropriate venue to conduct political activities. We ask that our Members and visitors not solicit at Philanthropy Southeast-sponsored events or programs and that Members and visitors not use information obtained through their Philanthropy Southeast membership or participation in Philanthropy Southeast events for charitable, business or other solicitations outside of those events.
