Our Story


Actively Relcaiming Dollars for our Clients

Ideal Impact was founded for one purpose - to give back. We began working with Christian ministries in 2009 and school districts in 2015. We want to make a difference for Texas ministries and schools by reclaiming dollars already in their budgets, dollars that can then be used to advance our clients' mission. To accomplish this goal, we bring world-class expertise and a passion for sustainable results.

Our Origin

Wes McDaniel, our founder and CEO, responded to a calling in 2008 to apply 30 years of experience with commercial clients to help ministries. In the beginning, it seemed as though $1 Billion in savings was a great stretch goal. We began exclusively serving ministries in the DFW Metroplex. After rapid growth in the first few years, we expanded to Austin in 2013, then to Houston in 2014. In 2015, we began serving  school districts in the greater DFW and Houston areas. With the 750+ partners we have today, we have passed the original $1 Billion goal and are setting our sights even higher.

With over 140 years combined experience, our core team has delivered positive results for organizations around the world, including 120 of the biggest school districts in Texas. We bring all of this expertise and experience to Texas school districts and ministries with a passion to see lives changed through the impact these organizations have on the students and communities they serve.
