Who we are and what we do?

Making A Difference For You, Inc. (MAD4YU) is a grass-roots, Virginia-based 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization providing life enrichment services to low-income and ‘fringe’ populations. The name reflects its very purpose:  making a difference for you.
That is – providing the tools for success  – using computer literacy and study skills as the catalyst – to equip those who otherwise might not have access. Utilizing ‘MAD-ly’ committed and talented volunteers as agents of change. Our volunteers are very qualified and represent numerous backgrounds, military/veterans, professionals, entrepreneurs, persons with disabilities, college grads, college students, and even middle and high school honor students.
The acronym MAD4YU signifies the passion and unwavering commitment towards accomplishing that objective: MAD, and motivated enough to provide life enrichment services and programs – For You.
