A Foundation soaring to new heights
The Children’s Foundation is the state’s largest funder dedicated solely to advancing the health and wellness of the children in Michigan and beyond.
Through funding and advocacy, dedicated to three core pillars, Community Benefit, Pediatric Research and Medical Education, The Children’s Foundation enables researchers and community organizations to identify and implement innovations capable of advancing children’s health.
OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
The Jamie Daniels Foundation was established by the Daniels family in honor of their late son, Jamie, who died from an overdose at the age of 23 while receiving treatment for substance use disorder. Despite the support of his family, Jamie’s life was tragically lost due to substandard care and the predatory practices that exist in the billion-dollar addiction-recovery business. The Children’s Foundation assists the Jamie Daniels Foundation with fund development, financial management, and generating awareness about substance use disorder. Resources generated through this collaboration are used to further the Jamie Daniels Foundation’s mission of assisting individuals and families who are struggling with substance use disorder by providing the education, resources, professional guidance, and the support they need to make recovery possible.
OUR FOCUS ON
The Children’s Foundation has granted over $1 Million dollars towards mental health wellness & research programs.
