Where Our Partners Work

What You Can Do

We in the Skees family are living proof that any old person can launch a foundation. We believe in intention—and in the trying, even if we’re not Oprah or Mother Theresa or Melinda and Bill Gates. If you haven’t the time or inclination to create an endeavor of your own, however, you can make a difference with a loan, a scholarship, a check, or an afternoon.

Care

We believe that you matter, and that every small act of care ripples out far beyond what you or we can see.

U

Investigate

One mission. Read about our dedicated programs run by tireless visionaries who work long days all year to change the world for good. Follow our links, or read beyond our programs into other causes that stir your own passion.

 

z

Broadcast

Take one nugget—a fact or story that touches you—and send it out to your contacts. According to the USA Giving Report, $410 billion was giving to charity in 2018. Never underestimate your power to influence . . . or just to inform.

 

Volunteer

One hour. Sandy works with young girls, empowering them through exercise. Michaela volunteers with us to run our social media. Bri picks up trash for an hour each time she goes to the beach. Right where you live, someone needs your particular talent—and your most precious gift, your time.

Donate

One dollar. The counterintuitive truth is that governments and billionaire philanthropists give a fraction of what we little people add up to in charitable donations. According to Giving USA, 68% comes from individuals. Be the power at the grassroots. Collectively, we can do anything.
