Areas of Interest

The Dan and Margaret Maddox Charitable Fund’s mission is to better our community through strategic investments in furthering wildlife conservation, and in improving the lives of young people.

We invest in efforts that:

  • Focus on education
  • Focus on low-income youth
  • Support and protect wildlife habitats, especially those important for hunting and fishing

We look for initiatives that operate out of:

  • A mindset of effective management and excellence
  • A culture of results and innovation
  • A philosophy of high impact  (micro or macro)
  • Approaches that have the ability to significantly improve the lives and communities of the underserved

Our founders had a commitment to helping disadvantaged young people who strive to better their lives.  And they had a love of nature and a passion for hunting and fishing.
