Whereas, South Carolina's nonprofit and philanthropic organizations are vital partners to the State of South Carolina, working to champion the policies and programs enacted by the General Assembly to better achieve the State's vision; and


Whereas, nonprofits invest significant resources into making economic mobility possible, communities more vibrant, the State economy more efficient, families better supported, and individuals more empowered, positively impacting nearly every South Carolinian; and


Whereas, thousands of nonprofit organizations work across all forty-six counties, providing invaluable services for individuals, families, and communities that fill gaps in government and corporate funding and services. Nonprofits and philanthropic organizations are strong partners with many State agencies; and


Whereas, nonprofits employ more than ninety thousand individuals across numerous sectors; and


Whereas, tens of thousands of South Carolinian citizens give selflessly of their time, talent, and treasure as volunteers and board members; and


Whereas, South Carolina's philanthropic sector, consisting of corporate, community, family, and other private foundations, as well as United Ways and other grantmaking organizations help provide valuable resources; and


Whereas, in 2019 alone, the philanthropic sector made grant awards to nonprofits in excess of almost two hundred and fifty million dollars to strengthen South Carolina communities; and


Whereas, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic and other natural disasters, nonprofits and their funding partners have provided frontline services, playing crucial roles in stabilizing families, individuals, and communities; and


Whereas, hundreds of leaders are gathering in Columbia for South Carolina's 2023 Nonprofit Summit, presented by Together SC and co-hosted by SC Grantmakers Network; and


Whereas, the State of South Carolina is greatly enhanced and bolstered by the nonprofit and philanthropic organizations that call it home. Now, therefore,


Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
