The Touchstones Discussion Project has completed a new Strategic Plan for the 2022-2025 period. One of our primary goals is the establishment of an endowment fund to support the organization in perpetuity. In the spring of 2022, the Touchstones Board of Directors launched this endowment, aptly called “The Founders’ Fund” in honor of those who helped establish and develop Touchstones as a social-venture non-profit organization. This campaign has a goal of $5,000,000, of which more than $1,800,000 has been secured.
In recognition of the importance of this endowment and the strategic priorities and goals it will support, friends and Touchstones volunteers offered to host a special fundraising event in Annapolis. We are exceptionally grateful and excited to have had the opportunity to bring this new exhibition of paintings by Elliott Zuckerman to the public, thanks to their generosity. All proceeds from the sales of these paintings and contributions received during or related to the event will go to the Touchstones endowment fund.
