“Hello, I’m Susan Gibson. My Mother had dementia, but I lived many states away and could not be a daily caregiver. Mom was my best friend, so I had to do something.
Combining my pharmacy degree, Harvard MBA, 30 years of business experience in healthcare, and my passion for brain health, I started Vivolor™ Therapeutics and created its first product, Glory Day™ Brain Booster, which I believe will help millions of people.”
Empower recipients: Organizations that help recipients help themselves, restoring dignity and not creating dependency. Organizations that provide training and support for long-term transformation of the recipients. In other words, teaching recipients to fish and run a business, not just giving them a fish.
High impact: Organizations that have a record and history of examples of long-term transformation of the recipients and that get at the root of problems in poor communities. Organization that help eliminate systemic poverty.
Help the poorest: Provide substantive impact to the poorest of the poor, those who are hungry, needy or oppressed.
Good stewards of resources: Organizations with reasonable administrative overhead costs, so that the majority of funds donated go to help the recipients, not just run the organization.
Sustainable model (desirable): Organizations that are moving towards greater sustainability where activities are self-financing and do not constantly require inflow of new funding. Organizations with infrastructure that is effective and repeatable.
Examples of organizations that meet Vivolor Therapeutics’ Criteria for Donations:
Microfinance non-profit that serves the poorest of the poor offering business loans, training, and education on saving with the goal to “eradicate extreme poverty in our lifetime”. Every dollar donated continues to work for decades as it gets re-loaned again and again.
