OrthoIndy Foundation’s impact – ICAN

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 ICAN

OrthoIndy Foundation’s assistance provided training for new dogs and supplies for training three new dogs. As the only ACCREDITED service dog training program in Indiana, ICAN has brought together dogs, offenders, and people living with disabilities to provide hope for more enriched and independent living.

For these service dogs to be successful with their partners, they need to train with the same type of adaptive equipment that their future partners will be using. The support of OrthoIndy Foundation has helped make these life-changing partnerships possible. Thank you OrthoIndy Foundation! – Sally Irvin, Executive Director
