Using our E.A.R.S. to make a difference
“The Mickey Mouse Club cultivated a culture of diversity and inclusion long before it was brought to the forefront of corporate social responsibility. We are grateful to their organization for pioneering the message to our youth for so long, and also for supporting onePULSE in our effort to fight hate and promote acceptance.” – Barbara Poma, Executive Director, onePULSE Foundation*
Always In The Club Foundation
Inspired by the themes and social impact efforts of The 'All New' Mickey Mouse Club in the 90s, Always In The Club Foundation's mission is to help those who need it most through projects, programs, and outreach campaigns featuring reunited cast members of the now iconic show.
AITCF focused much of its recent efforts on providing food and critical assistance to families hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. In these efforts, we have participated in campaigns that have helped raise millions of dollars and provided over 14 million pieces of personal protective equipment to frontline healthcare workers.
Always In The Club Foundation is a nonprofit organization recently recognized as a 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service. However, AITC began its work as far back as 2012 as a fiscally sponsored program with training and support from the Clinton Foundation.

MMC'89 Social Impact Initiative
The 'All New' Mickey Mouse Club debuted in 1989 promoting diversity & inclusion, youth arts & education, concern for the environment, and the importance of socially conscious entrepreneurship. The MMC'89 Social Impact Initiative was co-founded by Team Create Impact™ and AITCF to promote the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals). The Global Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
MMC'89 supports educational programs, projects, events and outreach campaigns that work to end poverty, inequality and climate change.

We helped Mouseketeers reunite to partner with MusiCares®, The Brave Of Heart Fund, and Cast Member Pantry on Music For COVID Relief - Why? Because It’s Christmas
“More than a dozen former Mouseketeers reunited virtually to create a 17-track holiday album, Why? Because It's Christmas, that not only delivers sonic cheer, but financial support to those directly impacted by COVID-19. "Go Tell It On The Mountain" brings together all of the artists involved in a powerhouse number.” - Ana Monroy Yglesias (GRAMMY.com)*
"Music has such a unique ability to heal and unify us, and we’re so grateful for our position to continue to support music creators and professionals in these uncertain times. The direct impact we’ve been able to make on our music community during the pandemic would not be possible without the generosity of partners like Always In The Club." - Laura Segura, Executive Director of MusiCares (Beneficiary of Holiday Album)*
"We are grateful to Always in the Club for its efforts to raise awareness for the Brave of Heart Fund. Contributions like this one will allow the fund to support even more families of fallen healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic as they navigate their unimaginable losses." - Holly Welch Stubbing, President and CEO of E4E Relief (Beneficiary of Holiday Album)*
