Why SPF?


Democratic Philanthropy in Action

Foundation and donor support is the lifeblood that enable Southern Partners Fund to assist grassroots community leaders, organizations and networks to build their capacity and power to achieve racial and economic equity in SPF’s 12-state region across the rural South.

Southern Partners Fund’s model of democratic philanthropy is authentic and different from most foundations.
