*A report from the Chronicle of Philanthropy revealed that 3 out of 4 full-time employees at foundations are White and 90% of CEOs at foundations are White. In response to this, The Healing Trust has created an internship opportunity, specifically for students of color, to increase the racial diversity in philanthropy in Middle Tennessee.
