Impact & Accountability

The Michael Matters Foundation is a public charity with exemption status from federal income tax under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to The Michael Matters Foundation are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.

We operate almost exclusively on a volunteer basis, and limit administrative costs to essential operational minimums. Together with the generous contributions of supporters, including in-kind donations, The Michael Matters Foundation works to maximize the percentage of each dollar that goes directly to support grant recipients. 

Our grants are designed to help patients maintain their quality of life during their treatment. To date, more than $320,000.00 has been donated to these Michael Matters Grants, and more than 180 families have been positively impacted by these funds.
