to the purchase of a conversion van
or provide 100% funding for a conversion van

Our foundation to date awards 85% of the donations directly to purchasing a modified vehicle. We have no paid employees and little overhead. We have a team of wonderful volunteers and like minded souls who have adopted our mission and made it their own.

Contribute to our Scholarship

We can provide education together

A final goal of the foundation will be to secure monetary donations to subsidize scholarships to students who are majoring in studies that benefit children with disabilities. In its first year the foundation granted one student a $1,500 scholarship. We offered three but the word has not traveled that this scholarship is available. We would like to market this gift further and would like to raise at least $10,000 in donations toward scholarships.

Become a

Corporate Sponsor
Enjoy all the benefits of contributing to a charity

Our goal is to involve sponsoring corporations in the efforts of the foundation including educating corporations about living and caring for disabled children to encourage them to be aware of employees with disabled children and to educate them in the anxiety surrounding being a caregiver. There are many benefits to sponsors who will assist the foundation and René in these efforts.
