About the fund

 Since 2009, the Maddox Fund has awarded over $23 million in grants to more than 150 organizations. Our founders had a commitment to  young people, a love of nature and a passion for hunting and fishing. The board of directors, comprised of volunteer community leaders, oversees the fund’s operation and grantmaking.

My job is to make the money and her job is to give it away—and she's doing a lot better job than I am.
