Our mission is simple: The Futures Foundation generates resources and awards grants to help fulfill the needs, wishes and dreams of individuals with disabilities served by MORC.
Our stories are heartwarming! In the past few months, we have awarded many grants to help with needs such as hearing aids, a wheelchair ramp, car and home repairs. We have awarded grants to fulfill wishes of healthier lives by funding gym memberships, a mini vacation, and a comfortable bed to sleep in with a new mattress. We have awarded grants to fulfill dreams of being an award winning althlete at the Michigan Victory Games and to practice for the Special Olympics.
We are committed to enhancing lives, making memories and providing brighter futures.
Just announced! The Futures Foundation has been selected as one of the beneficiaries of the Rotary Club of Mt. Clemens' Spring Zing event for 2015. The proceeds will provide additional funding for camp scholarships for individuals with developmental disabilities served by MORC.

Sarah has been going to camp for the last 10 years. It’s the highlight of her summer. Although confined to a wheelchair because of her disability, she plays baseball and gets to have fun with the other campers in the tree house. She loves horseback riding and Super Hero Day. For one week, she feels just like all of the other kids!
Sarah may not get to go to camp this year because of unexpected budget cuts. But, you can help. You have the ability to be a real Super Hero for Sarah and others with developmental disabilities.
Members of The Futures Foundation Board of Directors, including James B. Nicholson, Dana Locniskar and Gerald Provencal, believe that each individual with developmental disabilities should be able to follow their dreams and go to summer camp. This year, your gift will be matched by each of these Directors. Your gift will be worth three times as much as Jim, Dana and Jerry have each pledged their generous support.
Won’t you partner with us to raise to help make dreams come true?
Our personal match provides you with a wonderful and unique opportunity because your generosity will stretch further than usual. Click on the DONATE NOW and make your gift today. It’s worth three times as much!
We wish you the best of holidays and are hopeful that you will join us in helping those with developmental disabilities realize their wishes, hopes and dreams.
The Futures Foundation is proud to announce the success of their 16th Annual Gala held on September 26th at the San Marino Club in Troy. The Futures Foundation and all of its supporters raised over $35,000! The night was filled with fun, laughter and heartwarming stories. Throughout the evening, Carson Alexander spoke about “Unmasking Disability." Joey Travolta spoke about the film camp that OU Cares is putting on and he also shared with us a big surprise. He invited his intern, Jeff Unger to Hollywood to help make movies produced by Inclusion Films.
This was the first year for presenting the Heart of MORC award which was presented to Don Lane and Keith Robinson of Greenfield Collision. This award was presented to them because of their outstanding participation in raising over $250,000 for the Futures Future through their many fundraising efforts.
The night ended with dancing, music and excellent prizes that individuals could win.
Thanks to the wonderful and generous support that we receive from community members, MORC associates, event supporters, vendors, grateful families and many others, we are able to provide grants to individuals and families. The grants provide items or services that are not covered by any insurance program. For some, it’s the difference of participating in community activities and being mobile to enjoy the outdoors. The grants range from $200 to $10,000 and help with home repairs, wheel chair ramps, YMCA memberships and even art supplies.
