Strategic Impact Initiatives
For the Foundation, partnering with established 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, its work can thrive to inspire, connect, support, and transform women, men, and children throughout the world. Our initial focus is on women and children of the world. By teaming with established charitable organizations, the Foundation will be able to support the under-served, often forgotten, often over-looked, and at-risk populations.
To date, GoalFriends Global Foundation has given directly to multiple impact partners; including: Project Soar Morocco, Wines for Humanity, Raleigh Rescue Mission, DREAMS of Wilmington, Touched Romania, and RiverCross. As the Foundation grows through impact partners, grants, corporate sponsor-ships, and direct support, we intend to bring programs and publications to the under-served, often forgotten and at-risk populations. Every voice matters. Together let's impact the world!
For our Impact Partners, we have 36 different programs of content already developed and ready to deploy for women. We would welcome the opportunity to collaborate with you.
For our Impact Partners, we have relationships already built with transformational thought leaders; such as, Patty Aubery and Rachael Bozsik. Ms. Aubery and Ms. Bozsik are available through live events, retreats, 1 on 1 coaching, women’s summits, and speaking engagements.
If you would like to team with us, we’d like to hear from you about your specific project needs.
See us in Action!
Rachael Bozsik, a next-generation change-maker invited to speak at 75+ universities, is the Founder and “It Girl” behind The Brand Girls program that swept college campuses. Having coached, connected, and inspired 20,000+ college women, Rachael serves on the GoalFriends Global Foundation Advisory Board.
In August 2019, we are grateful to Rachael for her leadership and recent gifts which will help jump-start GoalFriends on college campuses right here at home transforming a dozen women ready to start their GoalFriends journey. Rachael’s success in the college market, makes her an excellent partner to our Foundation to further empower women on college campuses.
Thank you Rachael Bozsik!
In January 2019, GoalFriend’s Founder, Darlene Whitehurst, along with five other GoalFriends, traveled to Marrakesh, Morocco, to volunteer with Project Soar. Project Soar’s mission is simple: to empower teenage girls in the developing world. These girls are provided lessons of empowerment to keep them in school and to prepare them for productive futures. Funded by the Foundation, GoalFriends created vision boards with the girls and encouraged them to step into their greatness and reach for their dreams.
The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal #5 is: “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.” This is a necessary goal for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world.
The GoalFriends Global Foundation is committed to sharing hope through time, talent, and treasures grounded in the power of goal setting. Project Soar Morocco is one example of our Foundation at work in empowering women globally.
It is estimated that there are more than 140 million orphans in the world. While that number is staggering, it doesn’t include children who are living on the street, exploited for labor, victims of trafficking, child soldiers, or living in institutions.
In 2018, GoalFriends Global Foundation was a proud sponsor of RiverCross’ mission-based activities to help build bridges of hope to these children. RiverCross is laser-beam focused on orphans and vulnerable children by delivering content that connects with hearts and promotes healing of trauma.
In September 2015, GoalFriends’ groups from St. Louis and Raleigh traveled to Bucharest to directly support the efforts of Touched Romania. Standing with the often marginalized women of Romania, GoalFriends sponsored Touched Romania’s 10th Anniversary Celebration by organizing a women’s empowerment conference for 100 local women. The mission of Touched Romania is to provide hope and healing to at-risk, vulnerable women and their children in Bucharest transforming lives in a sustainable way.
As a result of these efforts, GoalFriends exist in Romania today! In fact, they will be starting Year Three goal setting exercises very soon. Even before our Foundation was formally established, these activities of giving-back were prevalent throughout the GoalFriends community.
GoalFriend Global Foundation is an annual supporter of DREAMS of Wilmington. Dedicated to building creative, committed citizens, one child at a time, through providing youth in need with high-quality, free-of-charge programming in the literary, visual, multimedia and performing arts, DREAMS of Wilmington is creating a culture of confidence. Youth development through the arts allows DREAMS of Wilmington to give the gift of DREAMS.
“Goals are not to-do lists, they are VISIONS of your DREAMS,” says Darlene Whitehurst, founder of GoalFriends Global Foundation. May all your dreams and goals MATTER!
