    1. A few years later, she even founded an organization, Empower Orphans, which sends food, clothes, books, and many other things to orphans.

    2. A few years later, she even founded an organization, Empower Orphans, and it sends food, clothes, books, and many other things to orphans.
    [Does #1 mean #2? Can we change
    'which' into 'and it'?] They mean the same thing, yes, but #2 is wordy. #1 is the better sentence. Note that "made" is not the correct verb for this idea. She founded ... she formed ... she created ... <~~those are better verbs than "made"

    3. A few years later, she even founded an organization, Empower Orphans which sends food, clothes, books, and many other things to orphans.
    [In this sentence, ',' is deleted before 'which'. What is the difference between #1 and #3 because of the 'comma' before 'which'?] The comma is needed because Empower Orphans is an appositive for the word organization, and an appositive needs a comma before AND AFTER it.
