The Story of Operation Impact
When a group of generous leaders gets together, wild things can happen. Each of us saw a need to expand our borders in making a difference. How could we create a network of givers to join forces and provide for the needs of our communities? It was about the unity among us to be radical in our service to others.
So, in October of 2017, we challenged ourselves to rally as many people and build strategic partners within the NYC metro. We established a goal to raise $100,000 to provide hope in the form of gifts during the holiday season for families in need.
2.5 months later, $80,000 was collected and 80 families were given gifts for the holiday season. We fell short of our goal of 100 families, but 80% showed us what we could do better together. For the next 3 years we continued this initiative, now known as Operation Holiday Impact. This momentum set us in motion to be able to expand our borders to year round generosity: this was the birth of Operation Impact.
All together since our first initiative in 2017, we have raised nearly three quarters of a million dollars, mobilized over 2000 volunteers, given 7000+ kids the gift of hope during the holiday season, distributed over 3000 meals to those in need and nearly 2000 children received pre-filled backpacks for their upcoming school year.
It is our goal to raise the bar on generosity by enabling our community to serve those around them. To be the answer the world needs and show the power of joining hands together. It is a generous mission of contribution to create a radical movement of service.
We challenge others to think beyond themselves to grow in radical generosity through action. These efforts are what create a ripple effect to inspire generations to come.
We want to challenge you today to try out our blend of radical generosity to build community and join the movement to serve! Have a wild idea? Want to make a greater difference? See if we are fit for you by sharing your heart here!
Generous Mission. Radical Movement.

All contributions designated for specific projects shall be applied to those projects, and we may assess up to 10 percent to be used for administering the gift.
