    After sweeping through Cuba, Hurricane Ian hit Florida as a high Category 4 storm. Reminiscent in strength & location of 2004’s Hurricane Charley, which caused $17 billion in damages, Ian’s impact will be even more significant. After crossing Florida, Ian is expected to hit South Carolina & Georgia.

    Philanthropy Southeast is hosting a webinar in partnership with the Center for Disaster Philanthropy and Florida Philanthropic Network to help foundation, corporate and individual donors learn about the storm, the impact of the devastating wind and flooding and how they can help affected communities.


    The Philanthropy Southeast staff and guest experts will discuss how to support those affected by the storm, particularly elderly and immigrant communities in highly populated areas.

    At the end of the webinar, you will:
    • Have an overview of the flooding and damage from Hurricane Ian.
    • Understand how to best support community organizations working on the ground.
    • Learn about the unique needs of different populations in disaster recovery.

    The session will be moderated by Janine Lee, President & CEO of Philanthropy Southeast, and speakers will include:
    • Sally Ray, Director of Domestic Funds, Center for Disaster Philanthropy
    • Marcus Coleman, Director, DHS Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships
    • Roxie Jerde, President and CEO, Community Foundation of Sarasota County

    The program is free but registration is required in order to receive the login information.

    Supporting education issues, Organizations & needs in Florida

    Join us as we begin with a site visit to Morgan Woods Elementary to observe an early childhood pilot project with the Hillsborough County School District and the Conn Foundation, a private preschool located on a public-school campus. See this dynamic and impactful community of practice with public and private teachers from Prek3 through Kindergarten.  Read a summary of the program.

    The Conn Memorial Foundation will share the vision for the project followed by a tour of the classrooms and a panel discussion. The panel will include the district’s senior cabinet member responsible for early childhood, a senior management team member from the Early Learning Coalition involved with the project, a public school VPK teacher and the Executive Director of the private preschool.

    We will reconvene our meeting at the Nonprofit Leadership Center where we will learn about work in Florida on closing the Black student achievement gap from Braulio Colon as well as get a national perspective on education funders from Frank Gettridge, President & CEO, National Public Education Support Fund.  We will also get a Florida election update as it pertains to our education policy work as well as discuss what is likely to come up during the 2023 legislative session.

    During the past few years, we have lived in seemingly constant disruption. We have all been trying to forge our paths in numerous “new normal” settings, which begs the question: are we truly making progress toward the future we want to see?

    Disruption + Transformation is an opportunity to continue that disruption in a hopeful way and create new futures in nonprofit capacity building. Our national conference truly reflects the values of inclusion, diversity, community and environmental stewardship, with an intention to disrupt the status-quo and help nonprofit capacity builders forge new, more inclusive pathways to desired futures.

    Join Build Change & your fellow FPN members for a session focusing on building resilient housing systems in Florida.

    We’ll discuss how we can support communities across the state with housing that can better withstand the trials of natural related disasters often faced by our state and why it is critical to address the issue sooner rather than later. Our speakers will help us understand the link between resilient housing and racial equity, affordability and homeless crisis and provide attendees with tools they can use to impact the needs in the areas they serve.

    Build Change is the global leader in systems change for resilient housing. It is a non-profit social innovator with a mission to prevent housing losses caused by disasters, including earthquakes, extreme weather, and fires. Click HERE for more information about Build Change.
