What your Money has been going to?

We would like to thank everyone for your support and donations to the Makayla Fund.

We just wanted to give an update on what The Makayla Fund Board have been doing with your donations:

Scholarships $80,000.00+ donated to 270 student athletes at over 10 different High schools.

The Makayla Fund Scholarship was created to assist anyone who needs a little help in paying for sports tuition or help with buying new equipment or other fees they may occur from a Jr high or high school sport.
The Makayla Fund wants to show kids how sports can help build their self esteem and how the funds can help lift burdens off of the families who need just a little help in their lives. 

Signs of Suicide Program (SOS) – Screening for Mental Health is providing The program with our funds ($80,000.00) to 34 Schools, 22 Cities/towns and 6 Private/Catholic/Charter schools.

Trained an additional 1300 school staff from over 105 Schools 

Riverside(Formerly Screening for Mental Health) supports schools through the implementation process with as much, or as little, help as is necessary. Beyond implementing the program, SMH also provides free webinars, program support emails, and newsletters about advances in the field. The organization also truly sees its school-based implementers as partners and relies on suggestions and feedback to make improvements each year.
