The Maddox Fund partners with nonprofits to advance our interest in youth and the natural environment. For Maddox, strong nonprofit partnerships are built on our shared justice and liberation values and a commitment to learning.
The Maddox Fund’s commitment to transparency includes making grant information accessible and searchable. As we launch our new grant priorities in 2023, our past giving history provided here will be less predictive of our funding pattern going forward. Our partner priorities centers our commitment to being an anti-racist organization.
Care & Capacity Building
Grants to support organizational growth may focus on strategic planning, board development, executive search, fundraising, financial accounting, program evaluation are generally small and made directly to the nonprofit. First step is to talk to a Maddox staff member about your organization’s need.
The Maddox Fund wants to use its voice to support our nonprofit partners. If you are working on a public policy issue, organizing a community or launching a public awareness campaign, let us know how we can amplify your change work.
Young Nonprofit Professionals
The Maddox Fund makes grants of $1,000 to young nonprofit leaders (generally under 35) who want to hone their nonprofit staff skills. Applications open in the Summer/Fall and are announced on Maddox social media. Awards can be used on learning opportunities identified by the recipient and are grants are usually made to the sponsoring/employing nonprofit.
The Maddox Fund is seeking to align its investments with our values after having been a traditional endowment investor since 2008. As a learning organization, we are examining our practices and exploring how we can live our mission in all aspects of our work.
The Maddox Fund has developed a vendor selection tool to help us live into our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice, and Liberation values in all aspects of our work.
