"Giving back is very important to me and my family. We are in the position to help those less fortunate and want to do everything we can to make someone else's life a little better."

OUR MISSION: The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation provides impactful programs, grant funding, and community outreach, all towards efforts that empower, inspire and nurture the deserving youth of today.  All Foundation activities focus on one or more of these priorities: to build and instill confidence; encourage health, wellness and safety; and foster learning experiences that shape children’s futures.

OUR VISION:  We strive to improve the lives of children in need, primarily in three target areas: children from low socio-economic backgrounds, mentally and/or physically challenged children, and children at risk.  We support endeavors that provide young people the opportunity to realize their potential and achieve their dreams. The partner organizations we assist through our programs, grant funding and community outreach must proactively provide stability in youngster’s lives, support advocacy for children’s needs and offer channels that allow children to have a voice.

The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation is made up of individuals dedicated to helping others. From our fabulous volunteers to our Board to our small and committed staff, everyone comes together to have fun and help those in need! Come join our team!! 

Jim and Shannon were thrilled to form the Count On Me Family Foundation in October of 2005 as a realization of their mutual passion and dedication to help children. Shannon was involved with Special Olympics at an early age when she and her family cheered on her older sister Whittney at local competitions. 

That early outreach got Shannon hooked and Jim was soon to join in the fun.

Since they have had the opportunity to live many places throughout their life together, Jim and Shannon recognized the need that is within every community, especially in regard to children. They were also amazed and appreciative of the power of people coming together for a common goal of good. Their aspiration to give back with a powerful and meaningful platform culminated in the creation of the Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation. 

The Foundation raises funds, provides community programs and promotes awareness in support of children’s charities and organizations whose mission aligns with theirs, giving children the opportunity to realize their potential and achieve their dreams.

Programs

The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation's passion is to enhance the lives of children in need whether they are economically disadvantaged, medically fragile or developmentally challenged.

With this in mind, the Foundation has developed individual unique programs that reach children directly and positively impact their lives. Our Holiday Shops and Tailgate Party programs have served thousands of deserving children throughout the last decade and have continued to grow. Our Bus to the Bowl and Youth Football Extravaganza programs have reached and empowered even more children in our communities.

Through these partnerships we create a synergy which allows us to do more to assist children in need and at risk.
