COVID-19: Donate to State and Local Response Funds

BIPOC Book Club – A Partnership Between CCCF and AFP Central SC Chapter

Central Carolina Community Foundation is proud to partner with the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Central South Carolina Chapter, to offer a book club for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) development staff, executive directors and board members who have a fundraising responsibility at nonprofits located in the Foundation’s 11-county service area.

The book club will read and discuss No More Duct Tape Fundraising: The Nonprofit Leader’s Guide to Becoming an Inspirational Fundraiser by Rachel Ramjattan, CFRE. BIPOC Book Club participants will receive a free, signed copy of the book and will also be able to join a conversation with the author.

BIPOC Book Club participants can expect to:

  • Reflect upon the cultural norms in the fundraising field and how they intersect with their lived experience, as a BIPOC fundraiser.
  • Increase skills to equip board, staff and volunteers to be most effective when supporting the organization’s fundraising plan.
  • Increase and strengthen participants’ professional connections with other nonprofit professionals.
  • Gain a better understanding of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Central South Carolina Chapter and Central Carolina Community Foundation and the resources they provide nonprofit fundraisers.

Each discussion will be facilitated by Heather Singleton, Resource Development Division Director with United Way of the Midlands and CEO of Strategic Public Relations Consulting.

Space is limited (first come, first served) and registration is limited to one representative per organization. Participants must be able to participate in all four virtual sessions (Wednesdays in January at noon). All registrants will receive a free, signed copy of the book. Books will be mailed directly to registrants by December 31, 2020.

Participants who attend all four sessions will be eligible for a drawing for a free AFP membership.

Registration is open until November 30, 2020. Register here.
