Good day, This is Cathy at The Contributor, a one stop workforce/housing organization helping people experiencing homelessness reconnect to housing and the community. We have two looming challenges: 1) Awareness. Nashville has grown and so how do we help new folks understand what those guys selling papers on the corner are doing and 2) Growth. How do we budget sustainable growth for our rapidly growing housing/resources division.

Alyssa Dituro
01:26:06
This is Alyssa Dituro at McNeilly Center for Children. We are hoping to know how the organizations are considering childcare and how it plays into the work that they do with those who work for them, but also how it impacts Nashville as a whole as a childcare desert at the moment? As a nonprofit facility, how can we help funders understand how critical our industry is as we look for funding?
Joseph Gutierrez - Maddox Fund
01:29:18
Sorry I forgot about the pandemic part of the question. During the pandemic we switched all our grants to general operating support, recognizing that organizations' needs and the landscape are rapidly changing.

Do any of the funders support capital campaigns that incorporate land acquisition?Lethia, what tax credits are available at Regions bank that support financing for nonprofit work with marginalized communities ?
Allison Quintanilla Plattsmier
01:34:42
On that note though, are funders working at all to help facilitate conversations for organizations that are significantly duplicating services?
Amanda Tate
01:35:07
Can you speak to the intersection between sustainability and philanthropy? Recognizing that climate change exacerbates community need and impacts both nature and people, how do you as funders plan to address this global issue at a local level?
Anne Veal she/her
01:35:29
Yes, highlighting and amplifying Emerald Mitchell’s question on land acquisition!!
joni downey
01:35:40
Thank you for that!
Gay Burden
01:36:40
The Center for Effective Philanthropy interviewed 24 foundation leaders on general operating versus program funding. One quote from their report states:Most frequently, the majority of foundation leaders we interviewed focus their assessment of General Operating Support (GOS) at the level of the grantee organization. These leaders find that assessment at this level helps them gain a fuller picture of a grantee’s overall effectiveness. As one describes, “The unit of change for us is the nonprofit. We demonstrate a change in capacity with the trust that, by doing so, we’ll eventually get to systems change and equity outcomes over time.”
Allison Quintanilla Plattsmier
01:36:45
Thanks so much Corinne!

Franko Hashiguchi with the Nashville Shakespeare Festival (NSF). We have teamed up with Kennie Playhouse Theatre, a black-owned theatre whose mission is explicitly to present black-written theatre with black actors. NSF has hired Kenny Dozier of KPT as our producer and work to use the full resources of NSF to elevate KPT and bring disparate communities together. This summer, we had both Shakespeare's 12TH NIGHT and August Wilson's JITNEY to our Summer Shakespeare 2021. This coming summer, we will do the same with Shakespeare's Cymbeline and August Wilson's GEM OF THE OCEAN. Both mainstage, done either in series or in repertory.

For an organization new to your foundation/fund, do you prefer to have an informal exchange prior to any formal application…is email or phone preferable? Or do you not have much capacity for these conversations? Do you perceive cold proposals as a missed opportunity?

More on Nashville Shakes, we are bringing a 5 person team of actors to schools, community centers, and a few public shows doing a choice of three plays. This would also include FREE productions and workshops to Title I schools. We are also expanding to offering it free or more highly discounted (we already keep our prices exceeding low as a way to increase accessibility to all) to community centers that serve a majority of low income students.
