Our history

The Foundation was formed in 2009 and formerly known as the Michael Carter Foundation. In its five years of existence, the Michael Carter Foundation supported many non-profit organizations within the special needs community. The scope of the Foundation has since been extended to support a much broader range of non-profit and charitable organizations with the goal of empowering people and making a positive and lasting contribution to the communities we serve.
