Meet Matthew, A New Generation of Donor
Matthew has been a donor for fourteen years, and he is a supporter of our Rehabilitation for Hope program. We recently got the chance to talk with Matthew about his personal connection with our work and what he finds most inspiring.
“When I first started working and earning an income, I realized how fortunate I was and wanted to share my blessings with an organization that aligned with my culture and values. I am familiar with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, which suggests that after basic sustenance, health is essential for all humans to achieve their full human potential. I was attracted to the idea that the most effective way to assist those in need was to support access to good health services.
I learned about CMMB in 2006 through my online research. As a Catholic, it was important to me to find an organization that operated at the intersection of my faith and values and my charitable priorities. CMMB was a perfect match. It was a bonus that CMMB was located in my home city of New York.
Over the past fourteen years, it has been my privilege to support a number of projects that improve the lives of those in need through quality healthcare. Liz and I are grateful to be supporting the Rehabilitation for Hope project, which strengthens the development of children with disabilities. As new parents ourselves, we appreciate the importance of providing vulnerable families with access to services that are essential to the healthy development of children.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting several key members of the CMMB team, and more importantly, getting to know their work in more detail. This has enforced my confidence in their impact and has given me incredible respect for the staff on the ground and the sacrifices they make.
It has been and continues to be an honor to support these people of great expertise and integrity.”
