OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Muscular Dystrophy Family Foundation (MDFF) increases the quality of life and independence of people with Muscular Dystrophy, as well as empowers their families, through advocacy, education, and financial resources.
HISTORY & SERVICES
Since 1958, the Muscular Dystrophy Family Foundation (MDFF) has provided financial assistance, quality programs and services for the Muscular Dystrophy community in Indiana. We focus on providing adaptive equipment and direct support services to individuals and family members affected by a neuromuscular disease. Direct support services include annual social events and other equipment and services that enable those with Muscular Dystrophy to enjoy greater mobility and independence.
We are not affiliated with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). MDA is a nationwide organization that focuses on research and finding a cure, providing medical clinics and summer camps for kids.
MDFF is a qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax-exempt charity organization under federal tax guidelines.
Board members serve to provide direction and oversight for the organization. Representing a variety of backgrounds, each brings a strength to their role as a volunteer leader. Given the type of service provided by MDFF to Hoosier families dealing with muscular dystrophy, serving as a board member is extremely rewarding. We are currently taking applications for 2 new board members who have experience caring for a child or family member with MD. However, anyone who has a a passion for helping the MD community is welcome to apply!
Board Members will be interviewed for fit with the organization and meeting Board Member expectations. If you are interested or if you would like to learn more about volunteering for MDFF in another way, please visit the Volunteer page of our website.
