In honor of our founder, the Founder's Fund was established to support the creation of the Kay Berkson Fellowship. The program provides a unique opportunity for aspiring community and education leaders to spend a summer in a paid internship at Changing Worlds, gaining invaluable experiences in a variety of areas. Your gift can be designated to this fund to help provide the financial resources for the fellow's stipend and the costs associated with his/her work.
