Our Mission

To serve as instruments of change by aligning with parents, youth, and the community to strengthen and protect Iowa youth, families, and communities from substance use disorder.

About the ACM Foundation

The idea for the Addam C. Medina Foundation originated shortly after Addam's death in 2005. Given Addam's talent and passionate interest in music, fundraising events featuring young Iowa musicians, including Addam's family and friends, seemed to be a fitting tribute.

In 2020 we supported these nonprofits:
    Al Exito/Mary Campos Scholarship
    ArtForce Iowa
    City Voices
    Community Youth Concepts
    Miss Greater DSM Pageant Scholarship
    Iowa Homeless Youth Centers
    Rams Swim Club
    Summer Hoops/Urban Dreams
    Youth Emergency Services and Shelter (YESS)



At a time when we’re all experiencing a pandemic, generosity brings us together.
