The Matty Fund is a wonderfully generous organization whose impact has helped so many families. The hard working Siravo family, Matty Fund staff, board members, volunteers and everyone involved with the organization are top notch. I have attended and helped with their events for about 7 years. They continue to improve and grow. They have helped countless families live with epilepsy and continue to expand their reach. Great organization top to bottom
We love the Matty Fund. The dedication and devotation to this cause by Richard and Deb Siravo, their children, the board members and staff is truly inspiring. The work that is done for families dealing with epilepsy is remarkable. The Matty Fund changes lives everyday and we are so thankful to be supporters of such a wonderful organization.
I've had the tremendous honor of being involved with The Matty Fund, since it opened its doors to the non profit community in 2003. As a committee member, donor and long time supporter, I've witnessed this exceptional organization grow to new heights each year. Richard and Debra Siravo have truly made a difference in not only the Southern New England community, but throughout the country with their efforts to bring epilepsy to light. Countless children and families affected by epilepsy have benefited from The Matty Fund through fundraisers, support groups, scholarships, educational seminars and camps for children. If ever I hear of some one affected by epilepsy, I always advise them to contact The Matty Fund and amazingly enough, most folks around New England have already heard of them. I look forward to supporting The Matty Fund for many years to come at their annual 5k run and walk, golf tournament, and Snow Angel Ball. Kudos to Debra and Richard, they've left a lasting impression on so many folks nationwide.
Have volunteered and participated in several events over the years and have been thoroughly impressed with the work the Matty Fund does for those afflicted by epilepsy. The staff has always been very impressive and you can see the dedication to their cause. Continued success and congratulations to the Matty Fund
The Matty Fund continues to raise awareness and support for those families dealing with Epilepsy through their programs, services, resources, and community events. Richard and Debra Siravo have taken the loss of their precious son Matthew and dedicated their lives to helping other individuals and families dealing with Epilepsy. The Matty Fund continues to be a professionally run non-profit organization from top to bottom. They are truly making a difference in the lives of those affected with Epilepsy.
I have watched the Siravo family funnel their grief and energy into growing The Matthew Siravo Memorial Foundation from a small entity to a professionally run, well-known Rhode Island icon. Pool & Patio Center is proud to help their Foundation so that they can provide education and support to children with epilepsy and their families. The Siravo family is sincere and down-to-earth--and they stay focused, never wavering from their mission.
The MATTY FUND is a tremendous organization founded by an amazing family who took a true tragedy and turned it into a beautiful remembrance of their son and brother. It is a Foundation that provides resources, education, and assistance to families touched by epilepsy. We support the MATTY FUND because we are confident that any donation made goes directly to children, families, individuals, etc. that reach our to the Foundation for assistance. We are proud to support such a wonderful foundation.
Being a donor to the Matty Fund has become an important part of our charity giving.
They do so much for so many children to have epilepsy - the book and story they make available to schools helps more children understand the problem and what they can do if their friend should have a seziure.
I am very proud of being a part of their program.
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 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.
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!!
I donate to The Matty Fund for many reasons, but most importantly because I am confident that my donation helps children and families right here in Rhode Island. Donations support activities for children living with seizures and the side effects of strong medications and much needed support for parents to help them understand, accept and deal with this condition; as well as, to become strong and effective advocates for their children. I have seen firsthand the positve impact of their programs and services. Their school awareness program has had statewide impact among school age children to encourage an atmosphere of understanding, inclusion and safety while children are in school; support groups that are now accessible statewide connect families who share similar experiences so they can learn from and support each other through the challenging and rewarding times; workshops on epilepsy related topics help parents navigate complex educational and medical systems on behalf of their children; professional development for medical professionals encourage and improve patient safety, college scholarhips and childrens activities that are fun and safe are all examples of a local non-profit doing great work right here in Rhode Island, and I know my donation is making a difference!
As someone who is involved with various organizations, I have as much respect for the Matty Fund as I do for any other.
What started as an organization of one family to prevent a similar tragedy to any other family, has grown into a community organization and a vehicle that supports so many families now - whether it be through support groups or research.
The Matty Fund now embodies the spirit of its namesake and will carry on for years to come to help families deal with epilepsy. And through the hard work of its founders, the Siravo family, it will continue not only supporting families, but funding research to hopefully rid families of this dreaded disease.
