The Matty Fund aka Matthew Siravo Memorial Fundation, Inc.
August 9, 2011
As an intern for The Matty Fund, I was able to witness first hand the willingness from the Siravo's to make sure Epilepsy Awareness was constantly reaching new boarders. The dedication of the organization is top notch and they're always looking for new ways to expand. Not to mention the connection they share with the children is a completely different experience within itself. Although they focus on raising Epilepsy Awareness, it is clear the relationships with the children is their main focus, which I believe is extremely important in an organization of their type. The Matty Fund's desire to reach out to families suffering through problems with Epilepsy is unbelievable, and I strongly believe they are far and away the best Epilepsy Resource Center in Rhode Island and the surrounding New England area.

Seeing first hand the way The Matty Fund effects the surrounding community was an experience I've never had before. Just about everyone in Rhode Island knows about the organization and the way local businesses and volunteers connect with the organization is amazing. The constant and rising turnout for events such as the Snow Angel Ball and the Matthew Siravo Memorial 5K Run/Walk are tangible results that The Matty Fund is a growing and well-rounded organization.

I wouldn't make any major changes to the organization as they've done a great job at reaching and exceeding some of the goals they've made for themselves.
