To give our contract consultants who sit onsite at client locations a better way to participate in all our philanthropy initiatives, Apex created the Grants for Good program. Through Grants for Good, our consultants now have the opportunity to nominate a nonprofit they are passionate about in a community where they live, work, and serve! Every quarter our Philanthropy Committee chooses a winner to receive a $500 grant in support of their mission and cause.

What Does True Impact Ministry do?

True Impact’s mission is to mobilize and enable ordinary people to make an extraordinary impact on the lives of people in impoverished and developing areas of the world. The organization started helping Ugandans by building school classrooms, orphanages, and dormitories back in 1999. They currently take an annual mission trip with as many as 35 people to Uganda to construct these buildings and train locals to take over the construction projects, and provide the supplies and building costs.

True Impact also grants child sponsorships that provide complete care to the child. This includes food for two meals a day, school tuition to private schools including uniforms and supplies, clothing, medical care. Currently, True Impact sponsors 300 children and has 40 kids in line awaiting sponsorship.

How will this grant help True Impact?

In 2017, True Impact had the opportunity to purchase a Ugandan school which was started by another U.S. organization. Unfortunately, that school was poorly run and instead of providing education and care for the children, the owner embezzled the money. True Impact has since renamed the school, hired great teachers and administrators, and have added dorms and electricity. They still need to raise about $90,000 more to support the school while they are learning to become self-sufficient.
