The FUSION Foundation Community Programing is an opportunity for individuals and groups who have visionary ideas and who are not interested in reinventing the wheel or starting a new organization to partner with the FUSION. The FUSION Foundation is committed to serving those who serve at all levels of their current engagement with the community. This can be a perfect opportunity to individuals who are just starting to volunteer, seeking resources, or have a desire to partner with the foundation. Sometimes we can enjoin existing programs or to build upon or expand our programs to encompass the new idea. Partnering and or volunteering with FUSION can be beneficial because it may help you to gain the expertise required to run a particular program or to make connections to local resources.
The FUSION Foundation proudly serves as a fiscal sponsor and community incubator for some incredible Community Service Organizations and remarkable community programs including:

The Question we ask: “We know Peace is attainable. How do we make it sustainable?”
Through the mysterious, rather wonder-filled mathematical equation of Pi, Peace Pi is striving to find a new equation for Peace that we play with for a while. Whereas Pi is a CONSTANT, RANDOM, INFINITE number – the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter – so then the matter of creating world peace becomes a CONSTANT pursuit of RANDOM acts of Joy and Goodwill that go on&on&on&on&on&on&on&on&on&on……(INFINITE) forever. Our experiment – Sustain peace by streaming a CONSTANT, RANDOM INFINITE FLOW of Co-created efforts to lift each other up.
Peace Pi is setting out to create a CONSTANT flow of Goodwill in the world, through the creation of transformational, cause-oriented festivals and community gatherings – co-created, documented and shared virtually around the world. Festivals that support and call up causes that are meaningful to us. Events large and small that Peace Pi can point out to the stream of collective Pi’ed Pipers who wish to inspire global compassion for our shared humanity.
Statistics show that one in six American families are struggling to make ends meet and now must rely on local food banks as their primary source of food. Unfortunately, these food banks DO NOT have pet food programs in place to help these same families feed their hungry pets. Unemployment in Maricopa County has more than doubled since May 2007, reaching near record highs. Our mission at Cause4Paws Pet Food Bank is to make sure no pets are left behind or surrendered to local ‘kill shelters’ due to a lack of support.
Many find their only option is to abandon their family pets to the ASPCA or a ‘high-kill shelter. Seniors have to make the choice between much needed medications or pet food for their most loyal companions.
The United States Food Stamp program prohibits the underprivileged, economically challenged and/or (poor) from using Food Stamps to buy pet food. Billions are spent each year on carbonated beverages using food stamps yet not one penny can be used to feed a pet.
The following numbers are staggering and will only get worse with time.
As of July 8, 2013, CNSNEWS.com reported “ The number of Americans receiving subsidized food assistance from the federal government has risen to 101 million, representing roughly a third of the U.S. population”. “The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that a total of 101,000,000 people currently participate in at least one of the 15 food programs offered by the agency, at a cost of $114 Billion in fiscal year 2012. The population of the U.S. is 316.2 million people, meaning nearly a third of Americans receive food aid from the government”.Of the 101 million receiving food benefits, a record 47 million Americans participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps”.
Cause4Paws makes a difference in the lives of pets and their owners. With the efforts donors and volunteers in our local communities Cause4Paws is making a difference. We can save the lives of innocent pets from being surrendered to ‘kill-shelters’ and make it possible for the Elderly to keep their furry friends.
Cause4Paws approach is simple and realistic: Find the resources to obtain pet food for the needy and make sure those who need it get it.
Cause4Paws coordinates with local non-profit food banks, rescue shelters, senior centers and homeless shelters. Caws4Paws focus is to provide pet food to those in need by donating pet food to local support organizations that have already identified those in critical need who are pet owners. We want to do for pets what Food Banks do for people.

The work of HEAL International is based on the principle that every human life has equal value, irrespective of socioeconomic status. Adults and children living in areas that lack essential health services bear a disproportionate burden of disease and health complications and have been shown to have a shorter life expectancy than people living in communities that have access to basic health services and health education. Moreover, medical infrastructure and economics are intimately linked. Poor health conditions and infrastructure in resource-limited communities can have a dramatic effect on local economies.
