durkin-impact-logo2bThe Durkin IMPACT Foundation is a 501(c)(3) that was founded in  2012 on the heels of Hurricane Sandy devastating my home area of the Jersey Shore.

Our Mission: The Durkin IMPACT Foundation was established to motivate, educate, and inspire people to improve physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and to help those in need.

Now our IMPACT Foundation is raising money for scholarships to non-privileged, under-served student-athletes going to college who exemplify the qualities, traits, work ethic, and attitude of an “IMPACT” person. In addition, our funding priorities help those in need who are affected by natural disasters, childhood obesity, and diseases such as heart disease, disability, and cancer.

This year we are hosting our 5th Annual IMPACT Event at Fitness Quest 10 to raise money for deserving student-athletes who are college-bound. 100% of ALL proceeds from this event will go to the Durkin IMPACT Foundation to fund scholarships for deserving graduating student-athletes nationwide.

While the “IMPACT Event” is open to all, there will be a few other ways one can participate & contribute from anywhere around the country.

This is a FREE event; however, we will be accepting donations which will go directly to the Durkin IMPACT Foundation.

8:00-9:30am – IMPACT Workout led by Todd Durkin; all levels welcomed

8:00-11:00am – FQ10 Farmers Market

(FQ10 clients & friends are encouraged to bring one of your favorite treats or dishes to sell at our very own version of a Farmers Market. Each item will be sold for $5 so you can bring as many or as little “portions” as you want for $5 each portion. You do not need to be present, you can drop off/sell goodies)

Our Funding Priorities 

The Trust, in responding to the needs of people affected by natural disasters, childhood obesity, those with diseases such as heart disease & diabetes, and educational & athletic opportunities for those in need.  We are dedicated to funding five (5) significant program areas of interest within the following general annual distribution and allocation percentages:

  • Natural disaster relief (those that have lost homes, been displaced, out of work, etc.) 30%
  • Medical          20%
  • Educational   20%
  • Athletic          20%
  • Environment  10%

Note: From time to time, the Trust may make awards to organizations and institutions that have made no formal request, which we have recognized for exemplary work, and/or show significant promise in one or more of these five areas, and whose continuing work and mission would be more fully enhanced and supported by this funding.

To make a tax-deductible donation to the Durkin IMPACT Foundation, you can submit that to:

Todd Durkin
C/o Fitness Quest 10
9972 Scripps Ranch Blvd
San Diego, CA 92131

Please make check payable to the Durkin IMPACT Foundation. We will send you a receipt with our 501(c)3 tax-deductible number.

Our applications for our IMPACT scholarships are typically posted in February each year and are awarded in May of that year.

Occasionally, we will make donations outside of our IMPACT scholarships. If you have a pressing need where you are affected by natural disaster or disease and exemplify “IMPACT” standards, you can submit your cover letter, application, any receipts, etc. to the aforementioned address. Or you can email them to durkin@fitnessquest10.com with the Subject Line: Durkin IMPACT Foundation—request [See Below For All Applications]

Yours in IMPACT.
