"We are honored to partner with IFYC to broaden the impact of our shared commitment to advancing interfaith leadership. We salute IFYC for its visionary work and steadfast commitment to ensure that future leaders in this nation have a deep appreciation and respect for various faiths and religious traditions as we seek solutions to the most pressing problems of our times.”

Dow Davis is the Chair of the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations Board of Trustees. A leading foundation in the United States, the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations have provided philanthropy for over 65 years to theological and seminary educational institutions, and have adopted a recent additional focus on strengthening interfaith leadership and religious literacy for institutions across America.

"Our partnership with IFYC provides us the opportunity to share in the critical work of building a society in which different people with different traditions can find common values and build a shared life together.  It also helps us to teach our children the importance of welcoming those of all faith traditions. Accepting others does not mean giving up our Christian beliefs; in many ways, acceptance is the greatest expression of those beliefs. IFYC’s approach speaks to other religions in the same manner, and it is what makes it so effective and so timely in today’s world."

Hunter Hunt, CEO of Hunt Consolidated Energy, Inc., and Stephanie Hunt, a Board Member of the UN Agency for Refugees, are community leaders and philanthropists based in Dallas, Texas.
