The Annual Report for 2019 was focused on creating and launching The Mississippi Alliance of Nonprofits and Philanthropy. Now, reflecting on 2020, despite the pandemic and societal challenges we all faced, our second year proved to be one of significant growth for the Alliance. A growing team of staff and consultants has expanded our programs, adapted to virtual delivery on all fronts, upgraded communications and services, and met the demands of an unprecedented time in our culture.
This report highlights the work of The Alliance and its members by showcasing some of
the major accomplishments of 2020. It also presents the financial status of The Alliance. Please review the information carefully; and do not hesitate to provide us with comments, feedback, and suggestions. The purpose of this report is to be transparent about program and financial status and to share the future direction of the organization.
Looking ahead, it is a sense of excitement about the future that propels us forward. In the 2021 annual report you will see more emphasis on the use of technology to enhance service delivery, a robust policy agenda stemming from the work of the affinity groups, increased communication capacity, and a growing non-negotiable commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The intent is to build on the past so the future will bring even more gratitude, amazement, and excitement. This is an opportune moment for Mississippi to be the national leader in creating a bold capacity-building business model that includes philanthropy, nonprofits, and the public sector working collaboratively to improve results for children, families, and communities. We intend to seize that opportunity!
