The Make a Difference fundraising campaign benefiting the Stamford Youth Foundation, launched by Des Hague last month, continues to grow. Today, Hague along with Tony Spadaccini, President of the Stamford Youth Foundation, are launching a grassroots CrowdFunding program on GoFundMe to enable as many people as possible to make a financial contribution to this important cause. The sole intent is to raise funds to expand the program so more children have the opportunity to develop critical skills that will have a positive impact on their lives.

"The local business community has for years been behind our cause of making an investment in our youth's future,” stated Des Hague, Co-Founder of Aegis Enterprises LLC., and the Chairman of Corporate Contributions for the Stamford Youth Foundation. “The goal is a bold one: to raise $500,000 a year. That is no small task and we need all the help and support we can get! Many individuals have asked how they can help and that was the impetus for setting up this crowd funding initiative that allows individuals to easily participate. Now everyone in the local community can be a force for good. Let's do just that!"

Please visit to make your contribution today! Show you care and do your part in making a difference in your community. Every donation, no matter how small, helps to make a difference in the life of a child. Let's make sure that we do not leave one child behind for having an opportunity to develop and grow.

For anyone who would like to become more involved in the Foundation - SYF is looking for a marketing expert in the community. Please contact Tony Spadaccini, President of the Stamford Youth Foundation at Tony.spad(at) or Des Hague at deshague(at) for more information.
