Members of these two important groups are a significant part of our history, our present and our future. Leadership gifts have provided stability and growth since our inception, and positioned Matrix today with a supportive reach into the lives of families of children with special needs.


The Founder’s Circle is a unique giving society that capitalizes on Matrix’s mission-focused opportunities. Members of the Founder’s Circle give unrestricted “venture funds” which will be targeted at opportunities where other funding is not always readily available. Unrestricted gifts, which may be used at the discretion of the executive director, are especially effective in helping to promote our mission and position Matrix as a leader in empowering families with special needs children in 18 Northern California counties. This donor commitment strengthens our mission to empower families of children with special needs to successfully understand and access the systems that serve them. This distinguished group will receive special recognition in the Matrix conference room.

In addition, Matrix welcomes the opportunity each year to celebrate and recognize the generosity of its leading donors and their commitment in our Annual Report.

If you have any questions about the Founder’s Circle, please contact our office at (415) 884-3535.
