http://mclf.org

The Mike Clark Legacy Foundation is a non-profit fund that is administered by the Delaware Community Foundation,501(c)(3) organization. The MCLF is 100% volunteer-driven with extremely low administrative costs. The following committees have been established to implement its goals: The Fundraising Committee; The Communications Committee; The Event Selection Committee; and the Program Development Committee. When ever possible, the MCLF obtains supplies for its events on a donated basis. The Mike Clark Legacy Foundation (MCLF) was established in memory of Mike Clark. More than 30 years ago, Mike Clark started as a mentor at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware (BGCD) and continued to work with children as director and grant advisor for BGCD for the rest of his career. Mike had many friends in many different circles. His untimely death earlier this year at age 51 left the close knit community of Delaware in shock and eager to carry on Mikeys desire to help at risk youth in the community. To the MCLF, the values Mike demonstrated throughout his life y including his work ethic, his unselfish character, and his caring for those less fortunate y are emblematic of the values our community should reflect and promote. The MCLF was formed in memory of Mike to continue the promotion of these values in our community and to assist at risk youths. The members of the MCLF include financial, legal, human resources professionals, other professionals, a representative from the Delaware Senate, as well as representatives from the BGCD. All these members were friends of Mike and are committed to making the MCLF a success. In the span of just a few months, without any start-up funds, and at a time when both the Delaware and national economies are struggling, the MCLF has successfully organized several fund raising events, and to date has raised more than $75,000. While the MCLF is very pleased and encouraged by its early successes, the MCLF realizes much more needs to be done to fully implement its mission. The MCLF is now focused upon raising additional substantial funds sufficient to support specific and measurable education programs for at-risk youth. IM 4 MIKE'S KIDS
