Philanthropy Fellowships

Participatory grantmaking initiative that shares our decision-making power with young people.

2023 Maddox Philanthropy Fellowships

The Dan and Margaret Fund is pleased to announce the Maddox Philanthropy Fellowship Program applications are open! This participatory grantmaking initiative is an effort to share power and integrate the voices of the community into our processes.  This year we will be hosting two cohorts, a Black College-Aged Student Cohort and an LGBTQIA+ High School Cohort.  Participants will receive a $1,000 stipend for their participation.

Black College Student Cohort

For Black young adults ages 18-24 years old and residing or attending school in Middle Tennessee.

LGBTQIA+ High School Cohort
