Contribute-Making iDo A Reality

iDo is a non-profit organization that operates solely on grants and donations received from foundations, companies, and individuals across the United States. At the time of iDo's conception, much of our funding came from outside initiatives led by Martin Linder and organizations he had previously founded while teaching at San Francisco State University (SFSU).

In more recent years, iDo has been the beneficiary of many generous foundations, companies, and individuals. In 2007, Miranda Lux funded the first ever Community Bench Project, which now resides at Thurgood Marshall Academic High School (TMHS) in the Bay View/Hunters Point district of San Francisco, California.

Most recently, iDo has received two additional grants due to the success of the community bench project. Both Miranda Lux and The Fear Not Foundation have graciously donated monies that will allow for a second Community Bench to be built, and will also enable iDo to purchase much needed equipment for this project and expand our efforts across the nation.

We hope that you take the time to see what other great things iDo is doing each and every day, and we appreciate any contributions made to this program.
