Mission Statement

Team IMPACT connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses with college athletic teams, forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes.

Background Statement

Team IMPACT was founded with one purpose: to improve the quality of life for children facing life threatening and chronic illnesses. Our mission has been accomplished by designing a unique life experience for these courageous kids who are drafted by college athletic teams to participate as a full team member until their “graduation”. Since 2011, we have matched nearly 1,200 children with teams on over 450 campuses in 46 states. After children celebrate their “draft day” with the coach and team, they become a full-fledged teammate, attending practices, games, team dinner, celebrations and more. As with the student-athlete, being a teammate extends beyond the team season with an on-going friendship and camaraderie that includes keeping in touch off-season, over the summer, and includes teammates visiting the child if the child cannot get to campus.

To varying degrees, Team IMPACT children are initially challenged with a range of social, psychological, and physical challenges to include, anxiety, a foreshortened sense of future, inability to make/keep friends, and perceived isolation. Children who experience the team IMPACT relationship nearly always exhibit an improvement in their self-confidence, positive body image, academic achievement, and interactions with peers. Through our Theory of Change work, we are establishing a means of evaluating and measuring the quality of life improvement.

We fulfill our mission through family, medical, and athletic outreach, which results in an extensive matching and training process that ensures the highest quality relationship possible. Our high touch process ensures the team IMPACT relationship lasts throughout the duration of the child’s medical journey.

Impact Statement

2018 Accomplishments

1. Since 2011, drafted nearly 1,600 children to college athletic teams at more than 500 schools across the country, reaching more than 50,000 student athletes.

2. Opened 3 regional offices to support programmatic growth: Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco.

3. Changed staffing model to hire clinical social workers as Case Managers to help support and maintain often complex child-family-team relationships.

4. Rebranded the organization to reflect our focus on partnership and teamwork, and our national reach.

5. Moved to a new headquarters in Marina Bay of Quincy, MA to support our growing staff; currently have 26 staff members across the country; 22 in Quincy.

2018 Goals

1. Quality: Shift service delivery model to social work/case management model; resulting in quality control and credibility from the medical community.

2. Evaluation: Utilizing technology, implement organizational measurement and evaluation strategy the proves outcomes and impact while also ensuring health and quality of each relationship.

3. Development: Ensure a diverse revenue stream, removing focus on Boston gala, to support national expansion and ensure financial stability. Increase fundraising goal of $4M in 2018 to $4.5M in 2019, engaging individuals, foundations, corporations, grateful parents and regional leaders.

Needs Statement

1. We would like to increase our regional infrastructure, growing from 3 regional offices in 2018 (Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco) to 8 offices by 2022. Cities are chosen based on constellation of schools, hospitals and potential donors and partners. Serving as strategic partners on the ground, regional staff have already improved our number of matches; training of student athletes; communication between all regional strategic partners and philanthropic relationships within the regions.

2.  Improve our service delivery model and infrastructure to reduce risk, scale nationally an provide best possible experience for kids, families and student athletes. Utilizing technology will be critical to our success, allowing Team IMPACT to become more efficient and effective. We are seeking funds to fully develop the outward-facing app for Team IMPACT, which will create a low barrier, welcoming and safe online community for all participants.
3.  Strengthen brand awareness across the country, become a household name that can attract participants, medical and athletics partners and individuals/corporate donors to help me programmatic and development goals.
4.  Professionalize organization, and reduce risk, through important investments in operations and systems.

Under Development



  • Team IMPACT is chartered to improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses. Core to our model is harnessing the power of teamwork by matching these courageous kids with college athletic teams
  • Team IMPACT children are drafted onto local college athletic teams and become an official member of the team for the duration of their treatment and beyond. The child joins the athletic team and the student athletes join the child’s support team.
  • This involves fully supporting each other both on and off the field and participating in a full range of activities throughout the year(s) to include; attending practices and games, gaining on-field access, going to the movies, going for ice cream, making hospital visits, etc.
  • This represents an active and multi-year relationship both in and out of season, including the summer.  At Team IMPACT, there is no off-season when it comes to showing friendship and support for your youngest teammate.
Budget  $226,445.00
Category  Diseases, Disorders & Medical Disciplines, General/Other
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) College Aged (18-26 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
The short-term result is an extended support network from which the child can derive more laughter, strength and support.
  • In a world of feeling distanced and disconnected because of their medical, social and physical adversities, these team-based friendships provide an incredibly vibrant outlet for the child to feel the powerful bonds that come from being part of something bigger
  • The child benefits from the camaraderie, support, laughter and respect that come from being a valued member of a team
  • For each and every member of the participating athletic team, the experience provides inspiration and perspective.
    • The players gain invaluable perspective on the precious nature of life, and are humbled and inspired by the determination, strength and courage of a child fighting through such adversity.
Program Long-Term Success 
Beyond the immediate and direct impact of our program on the children, their family and the teams, we believe the program will produce longer-term benefits on the broader community. As thousands of college athletes in a particular region develop meaningful relationships with these children and their families we believe it will serve to:
  • Increase education, awareness and support for the medical and disease communities
  • Support from both a financial perspective and in the form of volunteerism
  • Increase education, awareness, sensitivity, compassion and support for children facing adverse issues and events.
Program Success Monitored By 
We maintain a weekly internal dashboard that measures the quality of each relationship across a number of measures to include:
  • Frequency of Visits
  • Sibling Involvement
  • Strength of Team Advocates
  • Depth/Breadth of the Relationship across the Team
  • Off Field and Off Campus Activity
  • Out of Season Involvement
In addition, we measure the quality of each relationships across a number of Pediatric Quality of Life Measures to include:
  • Emotional
    • Increased Self-Confidence
    • Brighter Sense of Future
  • Social
    • Establishment of Social Identity/Social Belonging
    • Improved Social Skills and Ability to Make & Keep Friends
  • Physical
    • Increased Motivation to Eat Right & Opportunity for Exercise
    • Increased Energy, Appetite, and Stamina
  • School
    • Less Stress & Anxiety about Attending School
    • Motivation to Succeed Academically
Examples of Program Success  With the help of our board of Medical Ambassadors, we track the improvements in the quality of life in the participating children across the universally accepted Pediatric Quality of Life Measures.  Anecdotal data, in the form of Case Studies, in addition to monthly surveys conducted with participating families illustrate significant improvement in the child's quality of life.
In addition, the number of repeat clients (families referring other families, campuses with multiple teams participating, medical professionals making multiple child referrals) also confirms that this program is a success.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
