The Making Life Better Foundation is operated by a small Board of Directors. Additional advisory committees may be created by the Board of Directors to assist with evaluation of resources and giving opportunities. Although currently operating by volunteers, as the foundation grows it may hire staff to administer the foundation and better fulfill its mission.


The individuals contributing to and volunteering for the Making Life Better Foundation come from diverse backgrounds yet support time-tested principles that transcend politics, religion or ethnicity. These principles are based on truth and have been supported by prominent individuals throughout the ages.

The foundation is committed to the principles of


“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic;
it takes sweat, determination and hard work.”
Colin Powell

“The reason a lot of people don’t recognize opportunity is because
it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work.”
Thomas Edison


“Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that
nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.”
Oprah Winfrey
“The time is always right to do what is right”
Martin Luther King


“You cannot help people permanently by doing for them,
what they could and should do for themselves.”
Abraham Lincoln
“Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom,
and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward.”
Patricia Sampson
“The best place to find a helping hand
is at the end of your own arm.”


“The best investment you can make is an investment in yourself,
the more you learn the more you’ll earn.”
Warren Buffett

“We have a responsibility and a challenge to take our places in the world of business, science, government, medicine, education, and every other worthwhile and constructive vocation. We have an obligation to train our hands and minds to excel in the work of the world for the blessing of all mankind.”
Gordon B. Hinckley


The Making Life Better Foundation primarily seeks to meet the basic necessities of food, clothing, shelter and education for economically underprivileged or disadvantaged individuals. Although handouts are sometimes necessary to support life, the Making Life Better Foundation encourages self-improvement and self-reliance rather than dependency.
