Do Good by Being YOU.

Be there for a child in your community by becoming a TeamMates mentor. By visiting with a student once a week at school, you could make a lifelong impact.  All you have to do is simply be there for them…and maybe play a round of UNO.

GL Cares

GreatLIFE has always been about healthy lifestyles for families and kids. And that includes supporting people in their mental, emotional and physical development, especially youth and our most vulnerable community members. Doing so, gives everyone the best opportunity for productive and meaningful lives.

GreatLIFE and Stand Together are tackling some of our biggest challenges – ensuring that every person has the opportunity to realize their full potential. We encourage you to get involved, mentor, volunteer, donate and support these fine organizations.

Thanks to Sioux Falls Thrive for facilitating this collaboration.

The Promising Futures Fund believes that a child’s economic background should never prevent them from having the same education, same experiences and same opportunities than a child whose family has more resources. We will do all we can to increase a child’s educational experience, outside experiences and provide ways to give inspiration and hope so a child can see their way out of poverty.
