Where it all began...


The Make An Immediate Difference Foundation was established in 2001 by Ronnie and Rhona Lubner for the sole purpose of providing funds for immediate distribution by individuals and NGOs.  

After recognising that traditional funding was hindered by long, protracted application forms and funding protocols, we sought to speed up the process by matching requests with funds for immediate use. 

Whether the request is for a new kitchen at a retirement home or a supply of art materials for a school, the MAID Foundation offers individuals and organisations with easy and immediate access to funding, allowing them to focus on what they do best - helping people. 

Until recently, the MAID Foundation had assisted individuals and organisations who had approached us for funding. This year, we're bringing the application process to the public with the Springboard Initiative
