The year 2020 has been turbulent for non-profit organizations. Fundraising is always a challenge, but never more than this year Charities had to sustain temporary closures due to COVID-19, and need to raise more funds than usual to make up for lost time and to implement program changes.
Thankfully, there are angel organizations, donors, and foundations that believe in NeuroHope and are eager to help!
I’m thrilled to announce that NeuroHope is the proud recipient of a $25,000 program grant from the OrthoIndy and Indiana Orthopedic Hospital Foundation! This generous gift is made possibly by the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF). The OrthoIndy Foundation was created in 2012 with a mission to improve mobility and function for residents of central Indiana. The Foundation supports local programs that work to increase self-sufficiency, promote wellness, and improve the quality of life for individuals in need.
The Foundation first believed in our vision back in 2016, when it supplied NeuroHope with a generous expansion grant to help our clinic move to our current location. In the four years since, NeuroHope has grown to form a true continuum of care program for people living with and recovering from paralysis, and we’ve helped 184 people on their road to recovery.
Our program revolves around providing supplemental therapy and exercise for patients. Most people attend NeuroHope because their insurance coverage for physical therapy has been capped. These patients need extended therapy and more time with specialists to work on goals that maximize recovery and improve their quality of life. This award from the OrthoIndy Foundation helps fund the supplementary care we provide, and will ensure our program remains strong in 2021 and beyond. We are humbled and honored to have their support!
