To ensure the wellness of children, including food and safety needs.

“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”     —Muhammad Ali


Through fund-raising, volunteer efforts and partnerships, DRIVE seeks to create brighter futures for Michigan children. From basic health and wellness needs to advanced education pursuits, we strive to do what we can to help children live happy, healthy lives and have more promising futures.

Michigan’s children need our help—

Michigan’s child poverty rate is 21 percent, that’s over 444,000 children.

Poverty increases the likelihood that a child will be exposed to factors that can impair his or her brain development and lead to poor academic, cognitive and health outcomes.

Reading proficiency by the end of third grade is a critical marker in a child’s educational development. Less than half of Michigan’s third graders tested as proficient in 2016, and that rate is declining.

65 percent of Michigan’s students are not college-ready.
