Our Story

'We make things that should matter, matter.™'

The 501 (c) (3) Foundation was created in July 2018 to honor the vision and mission of Gregory Proffitt, who passed far too young on 21 May 2018. The Foundation will be entirely funded by Spartan Medical through June 2021, with 100% of all donations going to the causes we support. The goal is to help fund the hardworking charities that get the proceeds directly to real people, locally, on the front-line. The mission is to find people that have demonstrated the propensity to do good, and to incentivize that incredible behavior with funding, to make the biggest possible impact in the most expedient and efficient manner possible.
