Our Founding Story
“You see, idealism detached from action is just a dream. But idealism allied with pragmatism, with rolling up your sleeves and making the world bend a bit, is very exciting. It’s very real.”
Tiffanie DeBartolo and Scott Schumaker started the ShineMaker Foundation in hopes that they could help make the world a better place; working with others everyday to make it bend
bit by bit.
Dreams can change histories and songs can alter destinies…
Originally brought together by love, compassion and the belief that music can change the world, they shared their vision with long-time friend and musician Race Solimine and in 2015 ShineMaker came to life. Rooted in love and human connection, the ShineMaker Foundation works to help materialize dreams of positive change into reality.
