Friends of Minds Matter

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.

Support for the staff and operational expenses 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, and you can find the full list of supporters in our annual report.
