Established in 2010, by Network colleagues, for Network colleagues, Network Angels is a charitable organization that helps employees and independent contractors of The MENTOR Network who experience sudden, life-altering events that jeopardize their ability to meet basic living expenses.
Network Angels collects monetary donations from Network employees, Mentors—also known as foster parents and host home providers—and other independent contractors, and from The MENTOR Network itself. Because Network Angels is a public charity, the law requires public support in the form of donations and limits the amount of money the company can provide. Donations from individuals are the lifeblood of the organization and critical to our ability to provide support to colleagues in need.
The organization’s Grant Selection Committee reviews applications for assistance and distributes funds as quickly as possible. The number and size of the grants depend on available resources, the scale of the event and the grant’s potential impact on the recipient and his or her family.
