The Durkin IMPACT Foundation
The Durkin IMPACT Foundation is a 501(c) that was founded in 2012 on the heels of Hurricane Sandy devastating my home area of the Jersey Shore.
The Durkin IMPACT Foundation was established to motivate, educate, and inspire people to improve physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and to help those in need.
Now our IMPACT Foundation is raising money for scholarships to non-privileged, under-served student-athletes going to college who exemplify the qualities, traits, work-ethic, and attitude of an “IMPACT” person. In addition, our funding priorities help those in need that are affected by natural disasters, childhood obesity, and those with diseases such as heart disease, disability, and cancer.
Our Funding Priorities:
The Trust, in responding to the needs of people affected by natural disasters, childhood obesity, those with diseases such as heart disease & diabetes, and educational & athletic opportunities for those in need. We are dedicated to funding five (5) significant program areas of interest within the following general annual distribution and allocation percentages:
- Natural disaster relief (those that have lost homes, been displaced, out of work, etc.) 30%
- Medical 20%
- Educational 20%
- Athletic 20%
- Environment 10%
Note: From time to time, the Trust may make awards to organizations and institutions that have made no formal request, which we have recognized for exemplary work, and/or show significant promise in one or more of these five areas, and whose continuing work and mission would be more fully enhanced and supported by this funding.
