Mississippi Alliance of Nonprofits and Philanthropy

The Mississippi Alliance of Nonprofits and Philanthropy (The Alliance) works to build capacity and foster collaboration among and between nonprofits and philanthropic communities. Although COVID-19 has made it more challenging for nonprofits and philanthropic organizations to connect, The Alliance is finding meaningful ways to bring people and organizations together across Mississippi.

The organization is providing resources to nonprofits to help them navigate virtual teams and remote working. The program team provides weekly webinars that highlight best practices from organizations and experts around the state who are working on COVID-19 response efforts. 

The Alliance has also created a COVID-19 resources hub with information relevant to philanthropy, nonprofits, and individuals. The resource hub includes information about how nonprofits can apply for the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program. 

We are grateful for The Alliance’s leadership. We applaud their efforts to continue creating community and collaboration among charitable organizations and donors.

Mississippi Humanities Council

Mississippians have a deep appreciation for arts and culture. Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, Mississippi Humanities Council is continuing to provide residents with engaging and insightful programming. These efforts help us all learn more about ourselves and the world around us through virtual presentations. The organization traditionally hosts in-person presentations on a wide variety of topics, including history, literature, religion, languages, philosophy, and culture. Now, they are partnering with organizations to bring these presentations to you online. 

If you are interested in learning about new history and culture, visit the Council’s Facebook page for information about upcoming online presentations. If your organization is interested in hosting a virtual speakers’ bureau presentation, contact Molly McMillan at mmcmillan@mhc.state.ms.us.

The Mississippi Humanities Council is also accepting applications from Mississippi cultural organizations affected by the COVID-19 crisis for emergency support through their CARES Emergency Grants. Visit their website to learn more.

Thank you to the Mississippi Humanities Council for finding a creative way to continue providing engaging learning opportunities.
