Founded since 1996, iDARE®, Inc. has been a concept of a grassroot individual involvement to servicing families, children, and communities. For decades and with such passion, one woman has volunteered in many different areas of outreach programs. Not until after the passing of her beloved father and through decades of difficult challenging circumstances, Ms. Nicky Dare has made her beloved father’s dreams of continued serving for others became reality. Her beloved father had donated family funds to start this organization in 2013. Ms. Dare has taken a personal pledge to continue her family tradition in living selflessly to help others in need. The concept of iDARE has finally became a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with its mission to continue servicing families, children, and communities since 2013.
iDARE®, Inc. is currently funded completely by public and private grants and donations.
Our team is comprised of results-oriented philanthropists, community leaders, and passionate social entrepreneurs seeking scalable solutions to major social challenges.
I do not believe in competition. Many of us are busy chasing rainbows, hungry for fame, power, and money. I prefer simplicity, and am happy to live in my world, where I can authentically define the scope of my efforts and views of success. There are three tiers to my life’s achievements: family, health, and happiness. It is important to keep our true identities in view and not become caught up in materialism or the facades of power and fame. Why give importance to these superficial considerations? What truly matters is to love and be our best at whatever we undertake. Such is my definition of happiness.
Together, let’s continue to make positive impacts in this world in fulfilling our mission in educating children, empowering women, and building resilient and safe communities.
