Our Co-founders

Mike & Julie Signorelli

Mike and Julie have been doing nonprofit work for many years. They are Pastors at V1 Church in New York. When Mike grew up poor in Hammond, IN and had years without Christmas presents he wanted to help children remember that someone cares and someone sees them.

For many years Mike and Julie have served in the communities they have lived over the years. Since coming to New York they have found “HOME SWEET HOME.” On the weekends you can catch them at Brunch in Brooklyn (Julie’s favorite pastime) or playing with their two girls, Bella and Everly. id

Tony & Frances Pappalardo

Tony and Frances are performance coaches, entrepreneurs and leaders of the philosophy and movement Customize Your Life—how to live a more intentional life in alignment with your values. 

Operation Impact was born out of a need for more contribution in their community.  “One of the things we do is teach people how to better manage and grow their money… what was missing was what MORE they could do with it. 

We wanted to create more opportunities for us to come together as a community and make radical impact!”   When not leading change or finding ways to make a difference, Tony and Frances can be found bumming around in sweatpants or board shorts with their kids and/or surfboards.  

We combined our efforts and assembled our core leadership team to create what we know today as Operation Impact.  The organization set out on a big mission, to raise 100k in just two months to support families in need during the holiday season, and an even bigger vision, to inspire a generation to reimagine charity and social responsibility. 

Four years later, with the help of more than 2000+ supporters, Operation Impact has raised just over half a million dollars to fund initiatives that serve community needs.
