Mirer Family Foundation, Inc.
The “MFF” was established on September 20, 1996 and is a non-profit 501 (c) (3). Our main focus has been to help children in the specific areas of health and education. We have personally contributed over $500,000 to help children and have never received outside donations. In order to reach and assist more children we need to raise more money. Our plan is to merge our business, the Mirror Wine Company, and our Foundation more closely together.
Over the past 15 years, we have provided continual support to The United Way, Boys and Girls Clubs, Make-a-Wish Foundation, The Oaklawn Foundation, Bashor Boys Home, several schools and churches and a variety of other charitable programs that benefit children.
Our current endowment at the University of Notre Dame provides financial assistance to multiple students each year (including the 2010 class valedictorian, Katie Washington from Gary, IN!). To date, we have been able to award over 20 students with scholarship money from our original gift to Notre Dame in 1998.
Further, every year NFL Charities award $1M in grants to support the charitable work of current and former NFL players – qualification for these grants are partially based on the amount of money that is raised by foundations such as ours. Once approved, the NFL matches the annual financial contributions. It is our goal to continue teaming up with the NFL to help as many children as possible.
