Charitable Giving

Giving is truly an endeavor that builds upon itself, and your gift to Origami can be a seed that bears rewards many times over.

Giving to Origami

Many of the success stories here are truly near-miracles – clients often come to us having lost their ability to move, speak, think, or even feel emotion – and leave with their quality of life and independence reclaimed.  Sadly, there is so much more we can do for those with little or no funding to support their rehabilitation. The sobering fact is that untreated brain injuries devastate the lives of thousands, including many right here at home. Charitable giving to Origami can help change the lives of those whose quality of life and independence are at risk.

More than just providing help to those currently in need, the support of our business and philanthropic community helps to bring legitimacy and visibility to the life-changing work that we do here, and ultimately create hope and success for many who are today hopeless and lost.

Unfolding Potential Fund

Origami's Unfolding Potential Fund was created to allow us to provide service to those community members in greatest need, by funding services and emergent needs for clients with little or no ability to pay. There are thousands of such individuals in Michigan, and our goal is to offer our life-changing support to as many as possible. Turning a brain injury survivor into the community prematurely (or worse yet, turning one away for lack of funding) is a far greater tragedy than the injury itself.  

The mission of the Unfolding Potential Fund (UPF) is to create opportunities to assist current or potential clients through grant and emergency relief requests. In addition, the Fund provides Origami the means to expand awareness of Traumatic Brain Injury and its effect on our community, and to support brain injury prevention initiatives.  Your contribution will be used to enhance the lives of brain injury survivors throughout Mid-Michigan by supporting needs for rehabilitation, education, vocational development, mobility, and more; or through emergency requests to address time-sensitive needs such as food, clothing, shelter, utilities, and medical needs. 

We encourage you to consult your financial advisor before deciding to make a donation to the Unfolding Potential Fund.
