Meet the man whose mission today is to change the lives of people tomorrow

In this episode of Cseking In, Nikki Csek reconnected and sat down with Al Hildebrandt to talk about his progress and continuous involvement within the community and the importance of making a difference to better the lives of others.

Hildebrandt's diverse career journey, including being a banker, policeman and firefighter gave him deeper insights into working with different people.

The Impact Tomorrow Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation led by Hildebrandt helps raise funds for multiple charities orientated around children's wellness, poverty and protection. He emphasizes the power of collaboration in propelling change.

Purposeful work was a huge motivational factor for Hildebrandt, and he and his wife Irene are committed to investing in the future of children and bettering their wellbeing. They aim to fund gaps to provide services to save lives.

“There's no secret weapon that will solve the problems,” Hildebrandt explains.

He goes on to highlight the importance of hard work and commitment to making longer-term improvements to people's lives.

“A little guy competing against the giants” drives Hildebrandt to work harder and aid communities through philanthropy.
