“I give because I live in San Bernardino and I have raised my children here. The kids in this district matter to me. The Making Hope Happen Foundation empowers kids to find and realize their dreams. There are no handouts, there are opportunities for work, for learning, and for growth. Those three things are a recipe for successful citizens, family members, business people, and people of character.”
“I give because that is my reasonable service. I give because giving puts the impossible in reach for others! Giving is an extension of love and I was created to love all! With giving to this foundation my gift will allow our students to come closer to their goals and dreams. I give as an investment into our future! Our students have so much talent and giving allows them to develop their goals and dreams! Giving denounces obstacles! I give with the HOPE that it will impact someone’s life enough that they will never give up on their dreams!!! I give to make hope happen!”
“I give because I care about the future of our children.
I give because education can lead to endless opportunities.
I give because I see potential in our students.
I give because charity builds a stronger community.”
“I give because it’s something that is important to me. I adore helping out my mentees. These are students with so much potential and thirst for success and it’s a blessing to watch them grow and help them in any way I can. That’s why I give.”
“Making Hope Happen Foundation is a great cause, and has made exemplary progress in the community! I’m THRILLED that my company was able to make a contribution towards the continued success of the foundation!”
“The reason I give is because I really do get excited when I see people thriving. The Making Hope Happen Foundation aims to make sure students, despite the challenges they face growing up, remain positive and confident that their goals are still obtainable. Of course I’d like to contribute to that mission.”
“I give because I’m constantly putting myself in their shoes. If I needed help or even just a friend, I would appreciate someone being there. So I give because I want to be there for those who need my help. I want to see magic happen and I want people to believe they are capable of anything. I may not be able to help everyone or help out everywhere…but when I can? Without a doubt, I’m there for my family, my friends, or my community.”
“I give because helping others has been an important aspect of who I am as far back as I can remember. My family influenced me as powerful models of giving to others and my faith inspires me to serve others. I am blessed with a career that allows me to pursue my passion in such fulfilling ways. Bottom line, it’s who I am.”
“I give because I have been a Rotarian for 18 years and have always believed that it is important to give back to the community, both in time and money. When we were planning our SBHS Class of ’67 reunion, it seemed like a great opportunity for many of us who no longer live in San Bernardino to give back to the community we grew up in. I give because helping these students achieve their dreams and goals just seems like the right thing to do.”
“I give because I like to envision a better tomorrow. I want to see those in my community flourish and thrive and if I can give some of my time to make that possible…I’ll do it. I give because I want my children to grow in a world where people help each other and root for one another.”
