Do it Best Corp. has formed a nonprofit organization, The Do it Best Foundation.
Do it Best Corp. and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana jointly announced a fundraising total of $223,938 as part of The Big DONation, a youth enrichment initiative launched to honor Don Wolf, Do it Best president emeritus and founder of the local Big Brothers Big Sisters chapter.
The Big DONation kicked off on June 18, Don Wolf’s 90th birthday. As a way to honor his legacy, Do it Best committed to matching all donations made to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana up to $90,000. While Don died on Sept. 11 before the conclusion of the fund drive, he was an early contributor and was excited to follow the progress of the campaign.
“Do it Best has a long tradition of supporting agencies like Big Brothers Big Sisters that are committed to serving the needs of others,” says Dan Starr, president and CEO of Do it Best. “Don Wolf and his legacy have inspired us to take that commitment to the next level with the formation of the Do it Best Foundation, where we look forward to supporting other community organizations and initiatives.”
The Do it Best Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, will focus on four key areas for its charitable giving: health and wellness, youth enrichment, the arts and the community. The foundation is establishing a committee tasked with reviewing and approving requests for funding. For more information on grant availability, visit doitbestfoundation.org.
