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.

The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation strives to lend support and to partner with charities and children's organizations through programs, grants, community awareness, and empowering organizations to help children.
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.
The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation believes in partnering with non-profit organizations that improve the lives of children. Through these partnerships we create a synergy which allows us to do more to assist children in need and at risk. From our signature partners like Special Olympics and Boys & Girls Clubs to smaller children's charities, we have found that when we work together we are able to accomplish greater goals that empower even more children.
The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation fosters support for charities and children's organizations through monetary grants and increased community awareness. Through the years, our focus has shifted towards the creation and growth of Foundation driven programs but we're still committed to community outreach through a limited grant cycle.
