"Giving back is very important to me and my entire 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."
- Jim Mora
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.
We would love to count on your participation and support at these upcoming events!

We might have all golf teams filled, but we’ve still got a place for you! Join us at the renowned Riviera Country Club for some post-golf fun at our BackSwing Bash & Happy Hour on Monday, May 16.

Making a positive impact in children's lives is what drives us here at Count On Me and at our third annual Youth Football Extravaganza it will be all about helping kids learn how to make a safe impact when they play football. As part of our YES! Programs – Youth, Education, Safety, our Count On Me Youth Football Extravaganza incorporates safety, teamwork and life skills into a fun-filled football clinic for elementary and middle school age children. If you know of, or are involved in a youth football program that serves socioeconomically disadvantaged youth and you’d like to find out more about this summer clinic, contact us now and stay tuned for more details and registration information.
Football season is a great time of year for Count On Me! It’s our chance to inspire many hundreds of deserving kids through our Bus 2 The Bowl program. Bus 2 The Bowl provides 7-13 year-olds a special day at a UCLA Football game at the iconic Rose Bowl. We work with our fantastic charitable partners, like youth football leagues, local Boys & Girls Clubs, elementary schools and children’s organizations to take busloads of youth on an exciting adventure that includes an exclusive tailgate experience, meal, and a ticket to that day’s game. We hope the kiddos have as much fun as we do as their hosts! If you’d like to find out more about sending a worthy group of kids to Bus 2 The Bowl or you are interested in the sponsorship and in-kind donor options available, please let us know!
