About The Mario Foundation

Thank you for your interest in The Mario Foundation!Ā We are a grassroots, nonprofit organization currently run by volunteers.

Having experienced the life-changing work of the Hope House firsthand, our founders realized that organizations like this needĀ a reliable stream of income. The Mario Foundation was formed in 2017 to tell the stories of children served and provide a tax-deductible opportunity for caring peopleĀ to give money, time, and additional resources.

Our Vision
Our vision is a reality in which hope and opportunities exist for ALL children in developingĀ communities.

Our Mission
The Mario Foundation connects people who have resources to children in desperate and dangerous circumstances, empowering them and therefore their communities by telling their stories and creating meaningful opportunities to give and serve.

The Mario Foundation is neither religious nor political. We help organizations that are ethical, aligned with our mission, and share our values of transparency, cost efficiency, and helping communities implement locally-based solutions.

Meet Mario

Our mission to serve was inspired by a baby named Mario, who came from nothing but had a big impact on everyone he met.
