One Catalyst Foundation Founded in 2016, One Catalyst Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing tangible support to the members of our community. Each year, the board of directors appoints an overarching theme that they feel reflects a growing need, such as medical financial assistance, oncology research, and educational scholarships. Through fundraisers, events, and donations, One Catalyst is able to ease the burden felt by the individuals who are struggling with these issues today.
The 2018 Objective of One Catalyst is to help pediatric patients live life to the fullest as they overcome struggles associated with undergoing treatment for a major medical diagnosis. At One Catalyst, we believe that tangible goods–the stuff you can hold on to, be it a new wig, a prosthetic, or a wheelchair–can have the biggest, immediate impact.
