Home / Our Mission

 

The Link Foundations mission is simply to help other charities and “support groups” in promoting and fundraising for their goals and efforts. And at the same time to spread our own message of connection. We are just trying to say that we are all in this together, like a big ol’ chain, and we need to support each other in whatever the situation may be, from a bad day, to the loss of a loved one, we all need to know others are there with love and support. This is what we find so amazing, that something that is typically thrown out or recycled like an old chain link can symbolize each of us in the chain. By wearing a link it will help to remind us all of this, and maybe others will notice it and ask what it’s all about. 

As a 501c3 charity we are 100% non-profit and plan to operate that way as long as we can. No one gets a paycheck from us, we have no payroll, and all our funds are turned directly back into the materials, events, and Government fees it takes to do what we are doing. This also makes it hard to spend every moment we wish we could working on our mission, we only wish we could be at every event, fundraiser, and more. But thats where we are looking for the help of others, to help us help!

If you have any questions about where and what we are doing with our funds, please feel free to reach out to us on our contact page. Thanks and Link up everyone you know, and then those you don’t know too!

What people are saying...

  • I am grateful for The Link Foundation because they take an interest in individual lives. They have blessed a few of our underprivileged teens with the nicest bikes they could have ever envisioned! It meant so much to each teen, giving them a greater sense of worth and identity.”

  • ….sometimes you just need a little help from your friends, and other times you make new friends during a very difficult time.  This is what happened to our family when our son, Brett Banasiewicz, suffered a traumatic brain injury on his BMX bike on August 23, 2011.  Dustin Grice is one of Brett’s BMX buddies that reached out to us about the Link Foundation.  Jeff Troldahl, founder of the Link Foundation, and Dustin Grice designed a “Maddog” bracelet with Brett’s signature colors pink and green.  The Link Foundation sold many bracelets via the internet and also allowed us to sell the bracelets at Brett’s BMX Skate Park.  The proceeds went to Brett’s mounting medical bills.  Brett was able to obtain the best care in the United States that also included hyperbarics.  Brett had to relocate to Texas because the state of Indiana is not licensed to administer hyperbarics  for TBI’s..
