The GROW

April 18 @ 12:04 pm

The South Carolina Progressive Network Education Fund, a (501c3) nonpartisan resource hub, is host to the SC Progressive Policy Institute and the Modjeska Simkins School for Human Rights.

Contributions to the Fund are tax deductible. The Fund is managed by a Board of Directors nominated by existing board members from the Network’s general individual membership. Nominees are mentored for a year by the board member who nominated them. They are expected to be graduates of the Modjeska School and trained in the Board responsibilities they are to assume. This will create a stable and professional leadership for the Fund. There are no longer organizational members of the Fund, but organizations will have the same opportunity to partner in campaigns of mutual interest, as we have done in the past with electoral reforms and Medicaid Expansion.

The South Carolina Progressive Network (501c4) remains an individual membership organization that promotes social and economic justice in the Palmetto State, supports the Fund’s policy initiatives and provides the “boots on the ground” that successful campaigns and effective movements require. The primary difference is that the organization is being reborn with the opportunities and challenges of choosing new direction and leadership, without the benefits and liabilities of having to share the small founding staff with the Fund.

SCPN is not associated with any political party, and although we can endorse candidates, most of our voter education and mobilization work focuses on policies, not candidates or parties. The Network has a political action committee, SC ProVote, that can provide assistance to progressive candidates. Membership dues and donations to SCPN are not tax deductible.

At its core, the Network is about connecting people to each other and to resources designed to leverage the work of progressive organizations. In the process, we are building a broad and diverse community of shared values.

Our offices are at 1340 Elmwood Ave. in downtown Columbia.
