Since our inception, we have been encouraging future teachers to "Be a Little More Matt" in their classrooms. Being a little more Matt means laughing, having fun, staying positive, and seeing the good in everyone. These are the traits that made Matt such a special teacher. We hope to encourage all of our supporters to be a little more Matt in all they do.

Several times throughout the year our foundation partners with other organizations in an effort to better our community and enhance the lives of children. One example is our Halloween "Trick our Read" event in October. We provide new and gently used books free of charge to children and youth as they "Trick or Treat" through our book selections. Please check our website for this, and other, opportunities throughout the year.
We are always looking for help! Whether you'd like to donate money or time, your resources are greatly appreciated. Love helping local non-profits? Make a tax-deductible monetary donation! Love working with kids? Come volunteer at the academy! We are also seeking new locations so we can offer our services in other parts of the county. Let us know if you have a classroom or office space to donate!
Our annual golf outing is our biggest fundraiser of the year. And it's not just for golfers! This family-friendly event is held every Spring. Golfers play 18-holes of golf in a shotgun tournament format, then stay for lunch, drinks, and fun. Other adults and children are welcome to join us for the after-golf party, where we socialize, eat great food, drink, play, and bid on amazing raffle baskets. View our "Golf Outing" tab to view photos of past outings and register for this year's event.
