Mission

The MJB Foundation supports children with mental and physical challenges primarily in the Central Ohio area. By sponsoring recreational and educational activities, donating physical goods and services, and making monetary contributions we hope to bring Joy to these children.

Our Vision

When we started the MJB foundation it was easy to immediately identify a need that wasn’t being met. Simply put, some children just don’t have access or enough access as the case may be. When Meghan was born in 1993 we had excellent insurance. Everything was paid for. If we needed equipment or some adaptive device for Meghan, no matter the cost, it was covered. In 2004 this type of insurance for anyone was nothing more than a faded memory, and the situation has not improved today.

Even the children with the most challenges are often left at the bottom of some bureaucratic list with not enough funding to obtain the resources they need to just be kids, to experience the Joy that should be childhood.

The MJB Foundation wants to be there to fill those gaps, to find those children who aren’t experiencing that Joy and help them with the resources they need. Whether that is some kind of therapy, an adaptive tricycle, a special tray or just an adaptive piece of furniture; we work with organizations like FCBDD to identify children in need, provide the needed funding and send them a gift of Joy from The MJB Foundation.
