About the Organization: The Felix Organization  was founded in 2006 by Rock ’n Roll Hall of Famer, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels and Emmy Award-winning casting director, Sheila Jaffe to enrich the lives of children growing up in the foster care system. Their programming includes overnight camps designed to meet the unique needs of the children, as well as year-round offerings in NY to help the children achieve their dreams.
Legal Entity Type: Nonprofit/Charity
SDG(s): Good Health and Well Being, Partnerships to achieve the Goals, Reduced Inequalities, Sustainable Cities and Communities
Legal Issue(s):

The Felix Organization would like to set up a planned giving program. They are seeking a comprehensive consultation to better understand: (i) what options are available to donors and if some are recommended over others; and (ii) what steps the Felix Organization team needs to put in place to accept/solicit donations. Most donors will be from NY/Tri-State Area and California. However, the Felix Organization plans to promote planned giving to a wider network down the road.
