260 Change Fund
Launched as a Nashville-based giving circle in July 2017, the 260 Change Fund envisions a thriving community that possesses a sustainable culture of giving through collective philanthropy made possible by unifying resources and empowering agents of change. The name "260" was derived from the February 1960 Nashville lunch counter sit-ins that transformed the segregation of businesses during the Jim Crow era. To honor the efforts of the 1960 change-agents, the name "260" was chosen to serve as a new synonym for change as a 260 degree turn represents movement in a new direction. Members invest their time, talent, treasure and testimony. The mission of the 260 Change Fund is to enhance and improve the lives of underrepresented people and families that lie and work in our community.
