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.
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.
