The Many Hats Institute

The Many Hats Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth around the world.


We connect “Hatters” – people with resources, talent, and time from the world of sports, arts, entertainment, industry, and other areas – with children and youth programs that need help.


See our Events page for events, projects, and initiatives we’ve supported, both within the United States and in other countries.


MHI’s day-to-day operations are led by founder Fabian Koss. The Board of Directors, comprised of President Fabian Koss, Treasurer Charles Muldoon, and Secretary Dario Sotomayor, provides governance and oversight.

``During my over 20 year career at the Inter-American Development Bank, I saw example after example of the positive difference that children and youth development programs can have. I knew then and there I wanted to continue helping, so in 1999 I founded the Many Hats Institute to have a direct impact on children’s lives and amplify worthy programs.``
