At Grantmakers for Southern Progress, we know that the South incubates ideas and actions the rest of the nation follows. At its worst, the South has laid the blueprint for dehumanization and harm. At its best, the South has created the conditions for real transformation by practicing community care for the most vulnerable among us, and envisioning liberation for us all.
Fellows for Southern Progress (FSP) is an innovative leadership development program that helps participants develop the knowledge and skills necessary to support grassroots movements and structural change in the South. Together, we are reckoning with philanthropy’s complicated history and building a future where our communities can thrive.
We know a more just and equitable South is possible. We believe philanthropy will help get us there.
We are building a community of changemakers in the South who are accountable to the region, the philanthropic sector, and each other in the service of justice. Are you in?
