2017 Nonprofit Summit Focus Announced

Posted By SCANPO, Monday, October 3, 2016

We're going "Healthier Together." Want to know why?

Only 20% of health outcomes depend on the work of the healthcare sector according the National Institutes of Health. 
 
So, who’s responsible for the other 80%?
 
We are. The work we as nonprofits do greatly impacts what are known as the “social determinants of health.” Because health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities – places we are working. 
 
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has set about to Create a Culture of Health in communities across the country because they believe health is inextricably shaped by the stability and safety of our housing, the quality of our schools, the availability of clean, safe, open spaces in our communities, and much more.
 
With “Healthier Together” as the theme for the 2017 Nonprofit Summit, that’s what this Summit is all about: Learning how we as nonprofits can make our community’s health a priority by building a culture of health within our state.
 
Here are some of the things you can expect to find at this year’s Summit:

  • More than 40+ concurrent sessions organized in 6 tracks: Operations, Communications & Advocacy, Fundraising, Leadership & Governance, Community Impact, and Healthier Together
  • 3 in-depth workships on Fundraising, Evaluation and Advocacy, plus SC Thrives' Poverty Simulation
  • 3 plenary sessions with thought-provoking keynotes
  • Birds of a Feather Gatherings
  • Site visits to local nonprofits 
  • SCANPO's 20th Year Celebration at the Columbia Museum of Art
