Help the Tacoma community and donate to the Making a Difference Foundation.

Why it matters when you donate to the Making a Difference Foundation…

First, your generous gift will help the lives of individuals and families by giving them a warm meal, diapers for their children, or fulfilling other crucial needs. While a greater donation will provide food, household products for several months, and much more.

Second, your generous gift will expand our no-questions-asked grocery shopping experience in which anyone can load the items of their choice into one of our shopping carts and check out with the help of our friendly and respectful staff at the Eloise’s Cooking Pot Food Bank.

Third, your generous gift will ensure more families get food delivered to their door, through our home delivery program, which supports over 600 families each week.

This foundation is an amazing resource for all people, veteran to civilian, low-income to working middle class. MADF provides so many programs to the local community, between the free no questions asked Eloise’s cooking pot food bank to the Homes 4 Veterans programs and many more! I am glad to have found this organization not only to work but to be able to give back to my community and make a difference not only in the lives of others but also in my own life. My friends and family now have a place to get help if needed or give help to someone in need.

This is a great foundation that deserves the support of local government and residents of Tacoma that it tirelessly serves!

Miguel Akira Smith, Google Review

Making A Difference really helps people in need. They care about the people they help and who support them as well. They are an inspiration.

Vanneliz Rosales, Google Review

This non-profit is hands down one of the best non-profits out there, they also own Eloise’s Cooking Pot Food Bank which is the 3rd largest food bank in Pierce County which shows that this organization cares and takes pride in what they do. They also own many other programs including Homes For Veterans which give cheap affordable housing to veterans in need. As well as scholarships to students who might have trouble meeting the financial needs of the college. Overall this company is invaluable for what it does for the community.

Alex Nguyen, Google Review

This organization is impacting many individual lives! The CEO of this organization is an encouraging leader and is passionate about her community. I have never worked in a more encouraging and meaningful position before coming here.
