260 Change Fund - Logo

The 260 Change Fund is organized for the purposes of collective philanthropy with each of the Fund’s members focused on delivering their time, talent and treasure to support underrepresented communities in urban Nashville, Tennessee. This Fund will be part of the Community Investment Network, a national effort that began in 2003 in Birmingham, Alabama when the Next Generation of African American Philanthropists (NGAAP) and the Birmingham Change Fund organized as giving circles and since have gone on to help support philanthropy and charitable giving among communities of color.

The founding members of the 260 Change Fund selected the name as an homage to the members of who participated in the nonviolent direct action campaign to end racial segregation at lunch counters in downtown Nashville, Tennessee that began in February 1960.
