“Giving is not just about making a donation. It’s about making a difference,” said former United Nations Foundation President and CEO Kathy Calvin.
The Mike Brown Group has created the Together We Give Foundation, an Idaho-based 501(c)3 organization that fosters our community by providing grants to charitable entities that help support and serve our community.
The Mike Brown Group donates to the foundation for every transaction that it is a part of and is further supported by the generosity of its agents and other corporate contributors. The charity also generates funds through periodic fundraising events and an annual gala. The organization, and its members, also regularly donate their time to worthy causes that need labor to support their work.
Mike Brown, the owner of The Mike Brown Group and co-founder of Together We Give, had this to say about the organization: “Our ethos is ‘fostering clients for life,’ and part of that statement is serving the community in which we live. As a company, we’ve always been very active in volunteering and donating to exceptional organizations, so creating a foundation that actively supports these efforts was only natural.”
Clients of The Mike Brown Group get to vote on what causes are supported by the foundation, with grants awarded at the end of each year.
If you know an organization that could benefit from a grant from Together We Give, please nominate them. If you would like to contribute to the organization, you can do so here.
Winston Churchill said it best, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Together We Give works toward bettering the lives of others in our community and welcomes your support.
