[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][heading]Friends of Minds Matter[/heading][divider line_type="No Line"][vc_column_text]Our national office provides infrastructure, operational support and technical assistance for chapters, most of which are volunteer-driven. We facilitate best practice sharing among chapters and raise dollars for chapter program expenses and national operations. We also manage the organization's Alumni Program, facilitate numerous national partnerships and work to increase awareness of our cause. Fundraising for infrastructure is the most challenging resource generation issue faced by our national office. Many donors want to support direct program costs and are not as drawn to supporting the staff and operational expenses that are crucial to the success of any non-profit organization. We therefore consider those who contribute significant unrestricted dollars to support our national infrastructure and operations as Friends of Minds Matter. We offer our special appreciation to the following donors (a complete list of our donors can be found in our annual report):[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_column_text]Diamond Status

"Organizations that build robust infrastructure—which includes sturdy information technology systems, financial systems, skills training, fundraising processes, and other essential overhead—are more likely to succeed than those that do not. This is not news, and nonprofits are no exception to the rule."
