$1 Million Awarded To Nonprofit In Plano, Texas

My Possibilities is an education and job placement program for those with developmental disabilities

North Texas-based My Possibilities recently announced a donation from Moody Foundation’s M-Pact Fund, receiving an award of $1 million over a three-year period. 

This esteemed recognition and support will greatly enhance the nonprofit’s efforts to innovate and expand the Employment Innovations School (EIS), powered by Bread Financial. This transformative program is designed to create meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

“Being chosen as part of the first cohort of the M-Pact Fund is a tremendous honor for us,” said Tod Marvin, chief executive officer of My Possibilities. “This grant will allow us to expand our Employment Innovations School, enabling us to offer enhanced training, resources and opportunities to our HIPsters (Hugely Important People), helping them achieve their employment goals and thrive in their communities.”

The M-Pact Fund is a newly established annual grantmaking initiative by the Moody Foundation, designed to drive transformational change in early learning and post-secondary success across Texas. This fund is part of the foundation’s historic $1 billion commitment over 20 years to support Texas education. In addition to providing grants, the M-Pact Fund will establish a collaborative network of grantees, facilitating the sharing of best practices and collective problem-solving. 

“By uniting these groups through an intentional, collaborative network, we can foster transformational change in early learning and postsecondary success for all Texans,” said Courtney Rogers, vice president of education at the Moody Foundation. “It is an honor to uplift the work of these grantees, and we look forward to continuing to grow this best-in-class network through future cycles of the M-Pact Fund.” 

For the first time since its inception, My Possibilities has immediate enrollment openings for both the EIS and Fischer Family School of Life Skills. Historically, due to high demand and immense need for the programs, prospective HIPsters have faced lengthy waitlists. However, thanks to recent campus expansion and support from foundations like Moody, the nonprofit can now serve even more HIPsters.
