Our mission is simple: The Futures Foundation generates resources and awards grants to help fulfill the needs, wishes and dreams of individuals with disabilities served by MORC.
Our stories are heartwarming! In the past few months, we have awarded many grants to help with needs such as hearing aids, a wheelchair ramp, car and home repairs. We have awarded grants to fulfill wishes of healthier lives by funding gym memberships, a mini vacation, and a comfortable bed to sleep in with a new mattress. We have awarded grants to fulfill dreams of being an award winning althlete at the Michigan Victory Games and to practice for the Special Olympics.
We are committed to enhancing lives, making memories and providing brighter futures.

Joey Travolta, actor, director, entertainer and brother of John Travolta, will host The Futures Foundation’s 16th Annual Gala fundraiser on Friday, Sept. 26, in Troy.
The Futures Foundation generates resources and awards grants to help fulfill the needs and dreams of individuals with developmental disabilities served by the Macomb Oakland Regional Center. MORC has offices in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne Counties.
Travolta founded Inclusion Films, which involve individuals with special needs in the process of making films. He has also formed an alliance with Oakland University’s OUCares film camp, heading the program and teaching filmmaking skills to individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
Sharing the stage with Travolta will be Carson Alexander, who will discuss “Unmasking Disability.” Also, Greenfield Collision will receive the first Heart of MORC award for generous philanthropy.
Thanks to the wonderful and generous support that we receive from community members, MORC associates, event supporters, vendors, grateful families and many others, we are able to provide grants to individuals and families. The grants provide items or services that are not covered by any insurance program. For some, it’s the difference of participating in community activities and being mobile to enjoy the outdoors. The grants range from $200 to $10,000 and help with home repairs, wheel chair ramps, YMCA memberships and even art supplies.
