ORGANIZER: MBA Open Doors Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
This is my first marathon! I am so excited and a bit terrified. Mostly I am proud to be running on the Opens Doors Team for an incredible foundation and inspiring cause. Please help support my run and know that your contribution will help a family in serious need.
The MBA Opens Doors Foundation seeks to aid, nurture and empower people and communities by developing and supporting programs that promote and defend sustainable homes for American families. The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) is committed to helping families around the country find comfort in their homes when they are at their most vulnerable. To that end, the MBA Opens Doors Foundation sponsors philanthropic programs focused on home and community support. The MBA Opens Doors Foundation Home Grant Assistance Program enables designated health care partners identify and provide program information to families that may benefit from financial support. The MBA Opens Doors Foundation was envisioned by board members Dan Arrigoni and Dave Stevens in 2011. MBA donated the first $50,000, soon to be followed by donations from generous members. The Foundation was granted 501(c)3 status in early 2012. The Foundation commenced efforts with Children’s National Medical System of Washington, D.C. in the summer of 2012, and began awarding mortgage assistance grants to qualified families in late 2012.
