My name is Jeremy Pittman. I started the Never Settle Foundation in honor of my father after he passed away from cancer. Since then, we have fundraised over $200,000 for innovative non-profits. This year we are partnering with 3 non-profits fighting poverty for our World Change 2016 campaign.

World Change 2015 Progress Report

At the end of 2015, Never Settle hosted its 2nd annual World Change campaign to promote giving and volunteering during the holiday season.  Our goal was to empower our community of ordinary people to make an extraordinary impact in the world during the two month campaign.

This year there were multiple days of gift matching so that donations could have double the impact. Also, companies like Google helped get their employees involved by allowing us to setup a booth …

Broken Hearts, Dirty Hands

There’s something magical about this time of year. The leaves start to turn their brilliant colors of orange, red, and yellow. The cool crispness of the air signals fall is here. I can literally almost smell the turkey roasting, the homemade bread baking, and the pumpkin pie waiting to be devoured by a house full of kids and grandkids. This season of thankfulness is followed closely with lights going up on houses, trees being trimmed by the fireplace, and decorations everywhere you turn. There are children Christmas plays, corporate parties, church programs, and if you’re lucky enough, carriage rides in …

My Trip to Google: Success vs Significance

I recently had the pleasure of traveling to Mountain View, California to attend “Take Your Parents to Work Day” at Google with my son, Jeremy. As a parent, when you think about great career opportunities and places you would be thrilled to see your kids work, it’s hard to beat Google. In 2014, Fortune magazine along with others, voted Google once again, “the best company to work for”. As I toured the campus, amazing doesn’t even begin to describe what I saw. There is an abundance of food everywhere you turn from gourmet meals to a hamburger on the grill. …

The Impact of a Mother

How do you quantify the impact of a mother? First off, she probably gave birth to you. If you’re reading this right now, that means you have a pulse. You owe that to your mom! Of course, not everyone is close to their birth mother. But I bet you have a step-mom, aunt, or female mentor that has made a big difference in your life. Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to thank them for their impact on you. Today, May 10, 2015 is Mother’s Day. We set aside this Sunday to celebrate and honor the mothers and important women …

Water Crisis Following Deadly Nepal Earthquake

As you’ve likely seen, there was a devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25th, killing more than 1,800 people. Never Settle partner, Splash, has 131 water projects serving 96,148 children in Kathmandu, Nepal. Only hours after the earthquake hit and tremors were still being felt, Splash worked diligently to make sure all Splash staff and their families were accounted for and safe. We can happily say that everyone on the Splash team in-country has been successfully contacted. Please know that the situation in Kathmandu is devastating. The city is in shambles. And clean water – already a critical need …

Why Easter is the Ultimate Reason to Never Settle

At first glance, April 16, 2006, seemed like a normal Easter Sunday for Higher Calling Church and Pastor Don. But this one would prove to be different. This one was special because Pastor Don was told by very competent doctors that it would be his last. And they were right. Multiple Myeloma, the blood cancer Pastor Don had been battling for seven years, was now taking over his body and his strength but not his resolve to preach Easter Sunday and launch the Never Settle series, a message given to him by God. His thin, frail body was an outward …
