Reviews for Make It Count Foundation Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Make It Count Foundation is an incredible labor of love of it's founder Jon Reese. This non profit was created simply for one purpose: to help people in the Long Island community by providing resources for optimal health, housing and education. I have experienced first hand how Make It Count makes a difference in peoples lives whether one is on the giving or receiving end. Make It Count Foundation transforms lives now, enabling those we influence to achieve their own personal potential and in turn, help others do the same. The Make It Count partners include United Way of Long Island, Great South Bay YMCA, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island, Habitat for Humanity of Suffolk, VFW of Patchogue and Suffolk County United Veterans. Whether it's a child, veteran or someone in need, Make It Count will ensure that your donations are put where they are needed most.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Our veteran initiative. Make It Count believes in honoring our heroes and ensuring that their lives are enriched as a result of their sacrifices. Make It Count supports our servicemen and women and their families on their journey back to civilian life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

eventually like to expand the reach throughout the United States. Phase one is building the Long Island initiative.
