WHERE's THE $$$$????

Many of the programs we support run during the school year year so now is the perfect time to share how we use the money raised through donations and fundraisers.  The cost is $40,000 per year and impacts 3200 kids annually. We are the only non-profit in our area focused on true prevention.
1) MIST (Mindfulness-Infusion for Students & Teachers) has been incorporated in all Barnegat Elementary schools and has been well received. Mindfulness is an achieved mental state to reduce anxieties and stay calm which helps kids prepare for learning, build self-awareness and self-esteem.
2) PROJECT AWARE imparts substance abuse education through real-life simulation and has been in existence in Stafford schools since 1999. In addition, our recent partnership with Hackensack Meridian Health brought PROJECT AWARE to Tuckerton, Eagleswood and Little Egg Harbor Township. The goal is to bring this to every Ocean County school!

3) STYLE (Student Team-Building Youth Leadership Experience), is a Southern Regional peer-to-peer mentoring program that trains 7th-12th graders about why kids make poor life choices and how to use their life skills to connect with other students.
The Maximilian Foundation supports programs that prevent self-destructive behaviors created by adolescent insecurities; strengthening the education of our young people by nourishing character, building confidence, and growing the life skills needed to sustain better choices.
Would you like to Donate?

Your donation will directly benefit over 3200 young people in Southern Ocean County each year through the programs we support: MIST,  Project  Aware, and STYLE. Would you consider a reoccurring monthly donation of $5? Any amount is helpful. Thanks in advance for your contribution! We are a 501 (c) (3) and our federal ID number (EIN) is 47-2427944.
