Carl Maxey Center: Bridging Divides

The Carl Maxey Center in Spokane bridges a vital gap in connecting Spokane’s African American community to critically needed resources.

A $20,000 grant to The Carl Maxey Center in Spokane supported their efforts to create a safety net to keep our businesses from losing ground and to develop a bridge to get us through the COVID-19 crisis to the other side.

By investing in the Center, we are investing in an underserved and indispensable part of our community.

“What Spokane’s African American community desperately needs right now is targeted assistance, directed specifically at our community,” says Sandra Williams, Executive Director of the Carl Maxey Center. “This grant acted as both a safety net to keep our businesses from losing ground, and as a bridge to get us through the COVID-19 crisis to the other side.”
