Announcing GSP’s 2023 Biennial Convening!

We are excited to continue our tradition of gathering in person again in 2023!

Please save the date for GSP’s Biennial Convening: August 30 – September 1, 2023 in Orlando, FL.

Our theme is The Forward Moment. We’ve made the case for equitable grantmaking, now is the moment when we push forward, put our ideas into practice, and make progress. The convening will be centered on four key focus areas: Climate, LGBTQ+, Immigrant, and Criminal Justice. The work of GSP is to share effective tools and strategies that center community and move philanthropy away from extraction and towards a practice of being in authentic relationships with directly impacted people.

Our goal for this convening is to offer a space for our network to better understand the South, its history and current practice of resistance, and to move resources into the communities that need them most. We will also be hosting our annual membership meeting and a Learning Tour of local partners working to build power in the greater Orlando area. We will announce the event location, open registration, and invite sponsors in early 2023, so be on the lookout!

Our work centers the voices of practitioners in an effort to build a bridge between grassroots movement and philanthropy. If you or a practitioner you know is interested in joining our Convening Planning Team, please fill out this form.

We hope to see you in August,
