Fresno State | Maddy Institute Donations

Greetings,

We have all witnessed how the increasing incivility in our political discourse has divided communities.  As a community leader, you know that makes it more difficult for communities to work together to meet the challenges they face.  

The Maddy Institute is working to change the tone and tenor of political discourse by encouraging a more fact-based, problem-solving, bi-partisan approach to politics.

We do this in several ways.

One way way we do this is through our Maddy Associate program that supports:

Our legislative intern programs that give Valley students the opportunity to work in State and Federal legislative offices in Washington, D.C., Sacramento and throughout the Valley.  (Over 300 Valley students are alums of Maddy Legislative Intern Programs.)

Our weekly tv/radio/podcast public affairs programs (e.g., The Maddy Report on ABC30, El Informe Maddy on Unimas, and Valley Views, on KMJ Newstalk 580/105.9) that look to inform Valley residents of important public policy issues
Our free e-newsletter, The Maddy Daily, that covers Valley politics and public policy for over 10,000 subscribers.
If you think you might be interested in joining the Maddy Associates program, we’ve attached a summary of possible levels of tax-deductible support.

Our Founding Fathers set the standard for us to follow: it is up to each of us to build a more perfect Union. We hope you will join us in that effort.

Sincerely,
Mark J. Keppler
Executive Director
