Solutions for Change has been awarded a grant of $2,500 from the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Million Dollar Round Table which is an association of financial industry professionals. The foundation makes grants to “charitable organizations that are empowering people in need in MDRT member communities worldwide.”
Our application was submitted and championed by long-time Solutions supporter Jeff Crane, who is a Financial Consultant at a local Thrivent Financial for Lutherans office. During his more than three years of involvement with Solutions, Jeff has become an enthusiastic advocate on behalf of the organization. Jeff sees a close fit between the ideals of his professional life and the goals of Solutions for Change. Both seek to provide long-term security and solutions, while maintaining high personal and ethical standards for everyone involved.
“As a financial professional, I was also impressed with the Solutions plan in strictly economic terms,” says Jeff. “When Solutions speaks of creating a permanent solution for a family, they mean giving people the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to become and remain housed, tax paying members of the community—forever. It’s a program based on accountability and responsibility.”
The MDRT Foundation grant will be used to advance Solutions’ Finding Our Way Home program, whose goal is to help 200 families and their 400 children find a permanent solution to their homelessness within three years.
“The MDRT Foundation is proud to honor your volunteerism and commitment to North County Solutions for Change” said the letter to Crane announcing the foundation’s decision.
Thank you Jeff for your involvement and continued support!
