An event at the Union League honoring the Rev. John Midwood on the occasion of his upcoming retirement brought many old friends together.
Many in attendance had made a special gift to the John E. Midwood Pathways Fund established in Midwood’s honor. More than $260,000 was earmarked to the fund to support life-changing programs and innovative opportunities that help clients overcome the barriers to success and break the cycle of deep-rooted poverty.
In addition, this unrestricted fund will, at the Board’s discretion, invest in groundbreaking initiatives and agency partnerships to ensure strong support for ECS clients as they find a real and reachable path to self-fulfillment and independence. These goals mirror the priorities Midwood established during his years as Executive Director and reflect the strategic plan of the agency.
