The quality of every nonprofit boils down to its people. You won't find better quality people than the volunteer founders and officers of The FUSION Foundation. FUSION creates community where it doesn't exist, empowers those who are already empowered, and is fulfilling on a vision of healing and nurturing every day. For nonprofit founders with a dream but without the scaffolding to operate effectively, FUSION is there -- we and many other nonprofits have built on the foundation that the FUSION Foundation provides.

The Fusion Foundation is a wonderful grass roots organization that truly helps those who serve their community. It has been a voice for the voiceless and stands up for those who are struggling to stand. I've been grateful to participate in their events that support those in need which has uplifted my soul in turn. Thank you for your many years of service!

The Fusion Foundation was an incredible support to a project that I founded called Grow Organic Kids.

They took us under their wing, supported the community impact we were passionate about making and gave us the resources and tools we needed to succeed. In just a year's time, we affected over 2000 students in the public school systems with organic gardening, and we couldn't have done it without the support of the foundation.

Besides their support, the integrity of the team has always stood out to me as one of their most precious "assets."

I highly recommend getting involved with the Foundation and supporting them financially, with volunteer hours or in any other capacity that fits for you.

The reach of the Fusion Foundation is wide and ever expanding. The Phoenix community has felt the reach of Fusion through so many grass root efforts that make the community a much better place. Providing fiscal help, educational support and simply a shoulder when needed. Because of its fluid nature, Fusion is able to help when and where the greatest impact can be achieved.
