2020 Racial Equity Summit – Co-Sponsors

Platinum Level Co-Sponsors:

Registration for the Racial Equity Summit is free to all, thanks to a generous Platinum Level Co-Sponsorship from Maxine Clark and Bob Fox.

Maxine Clark and Bob Fox established the Clark-Fox Family Foundation in 2004 to promote regional growth and prosperity by lifting up those populations that have been marginalized by society. They believe that those currently marginalized represent a goldmine of untapped talent to fuel growth and make St. Louis a more attractive, just and equitable place to live, work and raise a family. They focus on PK-12 and higher education, public health, immigration, social justice, racial equity, criminal justice reform, community leadership and entrepreneurship.
Deaconess Foundation is a grant making organization building power for child well-being through philanthropy, advocacy and organizing for racial equity and public policy change. The Foundation envisions a community that values the health and well-being of all children and gives priority attention to the most vulnerable. This community only thrives if the allocation of power and distribution of resources, benefits, opportunities and burdens are not predictable by, nor predicated on race. A ministry of the United Church of Christ, Deaconess has invested more than $85 million to improve the health of the St. Louis community since 1998. The Foundation’s advocacy and grant making footprint includes St. Louis City, St. Louis, Jefferson, St. Charles and Franklin Counties in Missouri and Madison, St. Clair and Monroe Counties in Illinois.
