To The Moon Fund

By connecting and/or introducing donors to these opportunities, we hope to educate more people about issues and needs, and to give you an up close look at how your change will make a measurable impact. We will always consider opportunities brought to our attention where a profound difference can be made, and we will take significant direction from children.

Every child should be able to fly to the moon if they dream of it. We'll inspire and engage communities to tap into their tremendous potential for change, using this fund to make strategic investments that drive toward results. 

Recognizing that making a World of Change® requires creativity and discovery, each opportunity includes an element of wonderment, to help elevate the positive vibrations of the universe. 

A child's journey should be an adventure filled with learning, growth, and empowerment.

Choose how you'll help kids blast off, knowing your change adds up big time, and in some cases will be matched penny for penny and dollar for dollar, resulting in double the impact.
