OrthoIndy Foundation’s impact – Survive Alive

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 Survive Alive

OrthoIndy Foundation purchased equipment for new building.

Survive Alive was opened in April of 1995 over 20 years ago and has educated over 160,000 children! However, the years have been hard on the facility and even harder on our website. The incredible gift that OrthoIndy has given to us will give Survive Alive new life! Not only will the facility be brought up to date with cool new props and a fresh look but our website will be able to do things it has never been capable of doing before. Children will have a life changing experience in our updated facility and will be able to continue the learning by visiting our new website.

On the website they can access fun, exciting educational games and activities from any smart device, expanding our reach and enhancing the learning experience. I thank OrthoIndy not just for saving Survive Alive, but for saving the lives of all those who will pass through our facility or visit our website and their families. It is impossible to measure the true impact of this incredible gift. Our motto is “It Takes a Village to Save a Child.” Thanks for saving our Village. – Captain Aleatha A. Henderson, Director of Public Education/Firefighters Survive Alive
