Our adopted charity for the Spring 2019 #TheEdCollabGathering is Grace Smith House.
Chosen by our Opening Keynote Speaker, Charles R. Smith Jr., for their unwavering commitment to victims of domestic abuse.
Charles R. Smith Jr. says:
“The Grace Smith House provides support and services for domestic abuse victims. This issue is close to my heart because I’ve known numerous victims of domestic abuse throughout the years including family members when I was a child. Since they are local, I know exactly who the money is going to and that it will be well used and appreciated.”
Because #TheEdCollabGathering is a day of free learning, we invite you to donate what you would have spent on coffee, lunch, or even registration for an amazing day like this—pay forward to support others.
