About us

IMG_1406-MOTION.jpgThe Make A Change Foundation was formed in 2012 after several years of localized collection for Toys For Tots of King and Snohomish Counties. It was clear that year after year the motivation and giving spirit amongst our donors to make a change was growing by leaps and bounds. The Make A Change foundation, or “MAC Foundation” as we call it, was born out of a desire to recognize our donors and be able to provide more for the charities that we carefully select while in part honoring Francis “Brownie” Brown, our Vice-President’s late father. Brownie was a World War II Veteran who loved his country, loved kids and saved his pennies year round for Children’s Orthopedic Hospital. Today his memory lives on in the smiles of children who gain independence and moments of love and happiness in a sometimes unforgiving world. We are here to make a change and we’d love for you to join in with us.

Through your generosity and our network the MAC Foundation is able to get special deals that are not readily available by independent purchase. The power of your gift is amplified with the Make A Change Foundation.

We are a Washington State registered charity and a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit organization with 100% volunteer support which means every dollar that is donated is fueled into the community. Every donation will receive a tax deductible receipt for your charitable contribution.

Another way we greatly appreciate your assistance is in helping us get the word out about the Make A Change Foundation and the work we do. We invite you to “like” us on Facebook and share our posts!


Each holiday season we carefully vet and hand select a charity that exemplifies making a change. Please see our charitable history page to read about past and upcoming giving seasons. We’d love for you to follow along with us on Facebook to see your donation in action.
