Donating to a non-501c3 organization

The Cactus Jack Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to aid individuals, families, and other charitable organizations in need throughout Southeastern Connecticut.  In 2016, Cactus Jack teamed with Mike Buscetto to create the “Cactus Jack Pediatric Assistance Fund” which provides support to children and young people throughout the region.   Click HERE to read one inspiring story from The Day about how Power of Together Niantic provided important help to an individual through Cactus Jack.

If you have an idea about how to help an individual or worthy cause that isn’t a non-profit, 501(c)3), they can still be considered by having the donation managed through The Cactus Jack Foundation.


  1. Determine that your worthy cause is not a formal non-profit 501c3 organization.

  2. Contact the Cactus Jack Foundation ( and determine if they would support your cause if awarded at a Power of Together meeting.

  3. Once confirmed, please send an email to the PoT2 organizers ( letting us know BEFORE the meeting at which you might be making your pitch.
