OrthoIndy Foundation’s impact – Back on my Feet

OrthoIndy News

OrthoIndy established and funded the OrthoIndy Foundation, whose Mission Statement reads as follows:

The mission of the OIF is to improve mobility and function, specifically for the residents of Central Indiana –with a particular emphasis on veterans and the elderly– by benefiting the end users to increase self-sufficiency, promote wellness, and improve the quality of life for those affected by orthopedic issues.

Management of the OIF’s funds was entrusted to the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF). CICF performs all due diligence activities and vetting of grant requests by 501(c)3 non-profits. Strategic direction of the OIF’s philanthropic activities is done by the OIF Advisory Committee.

OrthoIndy Foundation’s impact on Back on my Feet

OrthoIndy Foundation provided scholarships, running equipment, socials, coaching and case management.

“Because of Back on My Feet I know what it is like just to smile at other people.
When I joined Back on My Feet I was full of shame. I was ashamed of my past and I was embarrassed that I didn’t have any teeth. I never smiled at anyone and was a grumpy person, thinking I was a waste of space. Because of the support of Back on My Feet I was able to get new dentures. I am now able to whistle and smile with pride. I now smile at people I pass in the street because I can, it might brighten their day just like Back on My Feet has brightened my life. I’m accepted and loved and now know I add value to the world.” – Jack, Veteran
