The Dirt Farmer Foundation is our way of focusing the social media power of the Dirt Farmer’s community to help worthwhile charities.
Our CAUSE it’s MAY or Cause of the Month is:
A non-profit organization that improves the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses through the power of team.
TEAM IMPACT children are drafted onto local college athletic teams and, to the greatest extent possible, become an official member of the team for the duration of their treatment and beyond. The child gains great strength, camaraderie and support and the student athletes are taught lessons about courage, resiliency and life perspective that they can’t learn in a classroom. Learn more HERE.
TEAM IMPACT children are diagnosed with a wide variety of life-threatening and chronic illnesses, yet a common denominator is the impact their diagnosis has had on their quality of life. Each case is submitted to the TEAM IMPACT Eligibility Committee for review prior to program participation.
|The committee looks for children between 5-15 years of age diagnosed with a life-threatening or chronic illness that has resulted in treatment and/or extended hospital stays within the past 3 years; who, as a result of their diagnosis, could benefit from a boost to improve their quality of life both socially and psychologically.

THE GO TEAM WANTS YOU! Team Up With TEAM IMPACT! Go. Go run. Go swim. Go bike. Just go. Go do what you love as part of TEAM IMPACT’s GoTeam. As a teammate on one of TEAM IMPACT's official teams, or through TEAM IMPACT's Race Your Race program – a program that allows athletes to compete in any race as a member of the GoTeam with no distance or fundraising requirement.
|When you race as a member of the GoTeam, you create awareness and financial support that helps TEAM IMPACT to continue to draft more children to collegiate athletic teams. One hundred percent of all funds raised through TEAM IMPACT go to support their mission. Learn more HERE.|
The majority of the associated expenses cover a full-time Relationship Manager who is responsible for the management of the relationships with the participating families and teams. This includes the development and successful completion of child centered goals that are defined by the parents and implemented by the student athletes. Each match typically lasts three years but the bonds, community, family that is developed during these three years, will last a lifetime.
TEAM IMPACT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES. With the help of volunteers and supporters, TEAM IMPACT can continue to spread it's mission and therefore impact more courageous children. If you are interested in helping TEAM IMPACT in a volunteer capacity learn more HERE.
