To the Friends of the Maynard Institute

We began this year with heartbreak. We end it with hope.

In February we lost our longtime president, Dori J. Maynard, to cancer. We all still feel her absence. There is hardly a day when I don’t think of her.

After mourning Dori's passing and celebrating her life, the institute has set out to carry out her legacy.

We have been helped this year by your contributions and by the financial support of the Ford, Kellogg and Knight foundations.

We’ve been able to maintain operations, develop programming, and position the institute to promote media diversity in the future.

We’ve begun a comprehensive evaluation that will produce a strategic plan for the institute's future by spring.

Please take time to look at the stories produced by our Voices correspondents in east Oakland and south Sacramento. These correspondents are local residents being trained by Maynard to tell the stories of their communities in their own voices.

This summer we partnered with POLITICO for the second year, training a diverse group of college students who are interested in political journalism and get an opportunity to learn in a newsroom in the forefront of online news.

There is continued demand for seminars using our Fault Lines diversity framework. We’ve had requests from newsrooms and college campuses. We don’t think there is a better tool to promote constructive conversation about difference. We’re only limited by the lack of resources to train more facilitators.
 
Now, as this challenging year comes to a close, we are counting on you as a friend of the Maynard Institute -- and as a supporter of diversity in media content and staffing – to help us survive and grow. For instance, we could use your financial support to create a “train the trainer” Fault Lines program.
 
Please send your tax-deductible gift before this year comes to an end so that Maynard can prepare for the future.
