We want to get kids active in their communities through programs and fundraisers that engage their interests.
Goals4Change set out to accomplish this mission in 2015 with its first annual Goals4Change Dodgeball Tournament. Fast forward to 2018, and G4C has successfully engaged hundreds of teenagers in the Dakota County area. G4C continues to find new ways to help the community it was founded in and is always looking for new causes to support. Goals4Change has raised funds for more than half a dozen local-impact-charities, and would love to help yours! If you or your charity is in the Dakota County area, contact us below and we will help you with your program or fundraising efforts!

We believe firmly in the mission of UNICEF, and because of that have fundraised for them!

Goals4Change was founded in 2015 by a variety of students at Rosemount High School. We're growing quickly, as our team has grown to more than a dozen dedicated volunteers. We've reached students from several schools throughout the Dakota County area, and look forward to reaching even more. Goals4Change is about setting goals that have a local impact, to make a global change. We've raised funds for over half a dozen different charities that are true to that message.
We're passionate about a lot of things at Goals4Change, but especially dodgeball and volunteering!
Our founders are highly active in the Dakota County area! Every founder is active in at least one other charitable organization as a volunteer. Photo circa 2015
The bulk of our fundraising comes from teenagers at our annual dodgeball tournament. We ask for $5 to play, and we're proud to say the average teenager gives $7!
RESULTS FROM OUR EVENTS!
We've helped raise awareness for a variety of local-impact-charities: The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Feed My Starving Children, 360Communities, the Walker Art Center, Neighborhood House, Big Brothers and Sisters. For example, our very last event raised $609 almost exclusively from kids, with an average donation of $7, when the admission fee was $5.
