ABOUT OUR FOUNDATION

Building community through vision

The mission of Make An Impact Foundation is to promote the education and well-being of children. We identify children in severe need (homeless, poverty, etc.) as well as those with learning needs, emotional needs, disabilities or disease, and create opportunities to produce change in their lives. Our vision at MAIF is to meet the needs of children by identifying worthwhile projects, empowering project champions, and finding donor partners to help meet each need.

WHAT WE DO

MAIF funds projects that impact the lives of children who are underprivileged, marginalized, underserved, ecnomomically disadvantaged, neglected, abused, distressed or simply in need.

WHAT WE DON'T

MAIF does not fund event sponsorship, organization overhead, political organizations or individuals - checks are written to either vendors or service providers rather than individuals

OUR PROCESS

Breaking down how we select projects

Identify

IDENTIFY

The first step of the process is identifying which projects have been properly submitted and have enough donor support.

Evaluate

EVALUATE

After these projects are identified, they are evaluated by our Board of Directors based on six, pre-determined criteria.

Fund

FUND

Once a project passes the evaluation process, it moves into the funding stage where donors can begin to contribute to its goals.
