The Orange Effect Foundation

I do not personally know this foundation nor have any experience with them but they reached out to me. I asked for specifics and the following is what I was told. "Our foundation assists children and young adults with speech disorders. We fund speech therapy and alternative and assistive technology. Although there isn't an income requirement, we ask for applicants to explain extenuating circumstances and clearly describe their need for funding. Applications may be sent at any time but are reviewed on a quarterly basis (deadlines for each quarter are February 15, May 15, August 15, November 15). (By- Maureen Stanton)
