Make A Donation

The DRIVEN Impact Team is a collection of men and women who support families facing obstacles by offering their financial resources to DRIVEN on a monthly basis.

If you are reading this, you are probably considering making a monthly donation to the DRIVEN Foundation. The DRIVEN Impact Team is designed to keep you connected to the DRIVEN Foundation through your giving and through your heart. The Impact Team is our continous giving program of $20.00+ per month. We understand that your resources are extremely important to your day-to-day living, but we also understand that sacrificing a piece of what you have so that others can have "something" is an amazing display of character. The members of the DRIVEN Impact Team are the most important partnerships that we have as an organization. In addition, DRIVEN Impact Team members are at the top of the list for updates, volunteer opportunities, event tickets and discounts in the DRIVEN Foundation Store.
