The Urban Share Community Gardening Project would not be possible without the support of the Sam Mazza Foundation. Their support through a $25,000 grant enabled WELCOME to hire a volunteer coordinator and project assistant who organize community events, donations and volunteers.
The Sam Mazza Foundation supports initiatives that strengthen communities through enriching culture, improving education and addressing physical and environmental health issues. The foundation gives special consideration to grantees who work to improve the condition of disadvantaged or marginalized populations. Founded in the belief that meaningful change requires a socially-responsible vision and innovative thinking, the Sam Mazza Foundation empowers charitable organizations to pursue a wide variety of projects that have a direct and measurable impact on the communities they serve.
