About us

Make a Change Foundation NW (MAC Foundation) 2018 holiday giving campaign for Hand in Hand Kids - Snohomish WAEstablished in 2012, the Make A Change Foundation NW, or "MAC Foundation" as we call it, was born out of a desire of one family to honor Francis "Brownie" Brown, the MAC Foundation 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 the Children's Orthopedic Hospital. Today, his memory lives on, as the MAC Foundation partners with members of the community, local organizations and businesses to provide for families and children in times of need and crisis. Each year, the motivation and giving spirit among donors has grown by leaps and bounds, and as a result, we take pride in knowing that "Brownie's" 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 difference by making a change and we’d love for you to join in with us.
