Aimed towards Millennials and Gen-Xers who wish to make a lasting difference in the community, the initiative supports them in establishing a permanent endowment fund to build a better world.

Also, learn how the Victoria Foundation’s Community Recovery Program supported the Help Fill a Dream Foundation’s pivot from trips to providing a more immediate and meaningful family-assistance program to families with children with life-threatening or lifechanging medical conditions.
