Support Emerging Leaders
The Tiffany Shackelford Foundation hopes you can help us honor Tiffany on what would have been her 49th birthday on July 31.
Earlier this year, we announced a new program: a scholarship fund called "Shackelford Shines" to help folks from marginalized backgrounds get to conferences and take unpaid speaking opportunities.
We are funding these scholarships at $599 each. The first recipient, Elisha Brown, recently attended the AAN (Association of Alternative Newsmedia) Conference. Here she is with foundation board member Kevin Goldberg at the event in Texas.
Our aim is to support as many people each year as we can. Elisha will be sharing her story soon of how this support helped her with an opportunity she otherwise would not have had.
We have set a goal for this birthday fundraising campaign at $2,400, which translates to four more emerging leaders we can support.
Please consider a donation this week as you remember Tiffany, who always paid it forward.
