Board Member, Pam Dargan has new full-time job! Good luck!

We have to say good-bye and good luck to Board Member, Pam Dargan.  She resigned her position in mid-June. Many of you know her and have met her as she was the Co-Chair of the “Family Support Fund” Committee.  Pam has been working part-time for many, many years at the Ohio Turnpike and a couple of months ago was recently given her dream of a full-time position.  We all wish her the best and we hope to see her at our events in the future!  Thank you, Pam!

June 9 Community Meeting – All About “Able Act” – Success!!!

Attorney David Umbaugh from Day Ketterer Ltd. was not able to attend this training (due to being very ill) on the “Able Act,” but was so gracious to find us a replacement in Daniel Johnson, Certified Financial Planner from Independence Financial Group.   Dan did an excellent job and often referred to David.  We were left in capable hands and the audience went home with more knowledge about this new federal law.  Many questions were asked and answered during and after the power point presentation.

THANK YOU, David and a big thank you to Dan for a most informational presentation!!!

April, 2015 “Family Support Fund” Initiative Report

The Zane’s Foundation Board Members are pleased and honored to report what has occurred for this quarter’s “Family Support Fund” Initiative.  Letters and checks have already been mailed out and the total of funds awarded to eight families here in Northeast Ohio was $8276!   This funding was awarded to their providers; we never give checks to families!

Two recipients received iPads and two received payments to allow them to attend summer camp/summer programming.  The rest of the funding was for different kinds of therapy:  speech/language, O/T, brain-balance and music.

A very big, big hug goes out to our “Family Support Fund” Committee!  They work behind the scenes and process the files.  We appreciate you so much!  They have received the files for this quarter already and it will be another large funding quarter!  Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters!!!
