The Euro-Peds Foundation was established in 2013 to help fund intensive therapy for children who have movement disorders caused by cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injuries, spina bifida and other gross motor disorders. It was formed by an endowment from the former North Oakland Foundation, a non-profit organization that had a legacy to financially support health-related causes in Oakland County, Michigan. One of its programs provided treatment scholarships for patients who were receiving life-altering, intensive physical therapy at Euro-Peds® National Center for Intensive Pediatric PT in Pontiac, Michigan.
The new Euro-Peds Foundation was formed as a 501(c)(3) with a committed and passionate Board of nine members who sought to continue the mission of helping uninsured or underinsured children with physical disabilities receive intensive physical therapy. The Euro-Peds Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) organization from the Euro-Peds® Center and is independently operated by the Board of Directors, who serve as volunteers.
