My daughter just returned from a two week trip to Nepal with the Maya Gold Foundation and her experience was transformative. The foundation prepared the youth ambassadors and the families with great care and detail on every aspect of the trip from cultural, educational and service. I cannot emphasize enough what a fine group this is and how they so embody the mission to empower youth in our community to realize their true selves.

This organization is amazing. Elise and Mathew, the founders, have such high integrity and they are totally dedicated to their mission. The MGF truly makes a difference both locally and internationally. I've seen everything they do meet with success. Would love to see this organization continue to expand, and have a larger and larger impact.

The Maya Gold Foundation was created by Maya Gold's parents after their daughter's tragic death. Mathew Swerdloff and Elise Gold made the life-affirming decision to honor the memory their daughter Maya by helping other teens to fulfill their potential, and to be supported by an aware and loving community. Thus the Maya Gold Foundation was born. Working locally and internationally, the Maya Gold Foundation is working deliberately and creatively to develop programs that will fulfill its mission. The Board's integrity and heart are inspirational. This is humanity at its best, turning tragedy into hope.

I have attended three Maya Gold Foundation events with my young children. They are very well produced and super organized. I got something out of each event, and my children did too. I recommend them highly.
