Reviews for The Matty Fund Aka Matthew Siravo Memorial Fundation, Inc.
The Matty Fund is always looking for new ways to reach a larger audience to educate more people about epilepsy.
The Matty Fund is an efficiently run nonprofit that has helped provide resources, counseling, aid and joy to both children and families affected by epilepsy. The founders, Deb and Richard Siravo, are two of the most kind hearted and generous people I have ever met. Their tireless work and dedication to The Matty Fund mission is admirable and their work has truly made a significant impact with the families and in the community. The organization is able to provide all this help while continuing to be run in a very efficient and effective manner. My fellow donors that I have met are thrilled with how their funds are being used to do such important work and I urge you to support The Matty Fund.
The Matty Fund has provided such a wonderful resource and experiences for our family. From participating on a panel discussion, attending fundraisers like the Snow Ball and Lobster bake, and creating the Alyssa Rose team to run in honor of our daughter each year - it has been really wonderful. All of the people at the Matty Fund have been amazing, and we are so fortunate to have this organization. And the events have allowed our family and friends to support our daughter when its hard for them to know how to support her. Thank you Matty Fund!
I am the Vice-Chairman of Rock-N-Jock Charities and first met Rich and Deb Siravo at a RNJ board meeting six years ago. We were meeting to make a decision on which Rhode Island children's charity RNJ Charities was going to support that year, with our two-days of fund raising events. When Rich and Deb got through telling us the story behind The Matty Fund and what they do, and have accomplished, there wasn't a dry eye at the table and we voted unanimously to support The Matty Fund that year and each year since. Along the way, we have supported other groups with The Matty Fund, but we have found that when it comes to event support The Matty Fund is 100% on board supporting all of our efforts. Whether it's advertising our events through their social media pages, helping set up silent auction tables, right down to helping load in sound equipment for the concert, The Matty Fund personnel, including Rich and Deb, are right there. I would strongly encourage any fund raising organizations that are looking to make donations to a very worthy non-profit, please consider The Matty Fund. RNJ Charities will continue to support The Matty Fund as long as I am a director on this board. I now consider Rich and Deb friends, and you will too.
I guess I can be a volunteer, client served, and donor! The Matty Fund has been very helpful in connecting people together with epilepsy and promoting awareness in the state of Rhode Island and beyond. On a personal level, they have helped to give confidence to my daughter diagnosed with epilepsy, in order to succeed in her transition to and thru college. In turn, she has returned back to the organization to return the favor...
I have been involved with The Matty Fund since its inception. Being able to view the organization as a volunteer, employee and now a board member has proven to me day in and out, just how wonderful The Matty Fund is. The events are a blast, the staff are professional and most importantly the children and families touched by epilepsy are the main priority!
The Matty Fund is a tremendous organization that works tirelessly to assist people and families afflicted with epilepsy. This is a passion, born out of tragedy, but persevering through providing support, awareness and strength to so many. Rick and Deb Siravo work tirelessly so others can be educated and assisted through this challenging disease. This organization is the most efficient, open and productive non-profit I have ever had the opportunity to be affiliated with.
The Matty Fund is an organization built from love and passion. My family has been touched by Epilepsy. Without the Matty Fund, our healing process would have been slower and tougher.
I have been to many events hosted by The Matty Fund and also have been one of the many sponsors at events. The folks that run the The Matty Fund are top notch from top to bottom. I have seen he joy and happiness that the help they provide for others brings. Kudos!! to the whole team!!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
The Matty Fund has provided my family and so many families support and services unlike any other organization. The Matty Fund's resource center provides so many programs, services and information about seizures and epilepsy. There is no other organization in the country that provides so many opportunities to families dealing with epilepsy. Thank you for all you do!!!
