Over the past year, the Maddox Charitable Fund has been talking about equity. While we are early in our journey, we are convinced that we can’t walk alone; we need partners to create a strong movement for change.
The Maddox Charitable Fund, along with the HCA Foundation, The Healing Trust and the Metro Arts Commission, is partnering with Center for Nonprofit Management to bring Crossroads’ anti-racism training back to Nashville. Education is the first step in order to chart a transformative course.
We invite our partners to consider an available training in 2019 (see descriptions and registration below). If you need scholarship assistance to participate, please contact us. Don’t let registration fees stand in your way.
Later in the year, we will be hosting Maddox Listening Meetings to hear directly from our partners about your Diversity, Equity and Inclusion plans. We want to learn from your ideas, directions and work, as well as listen to your concerns. Please sign up for a session when the invitation is sent.
The Maddox Charitable Fund’s mission is only possible with strong nonprofit partners. We’re thankful for your companionship on the road ahead.…
