Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 18, 2017
Today, Covered Insurance made a sizeable donation to the MBA Opens Doors Foundation in Washington, DC. Opens Doors is a non-profit organization run by the Mortgage Bankers Association and dedicated to providing assistance to families with a critically ill or injured child by making their mortgage payment.
“Our parents taught us from an early age that giving back to the community was a very important part of life,” said Ross Diedrich, Co-founder and CEO of Covered. “The MBA Opens Doors Foundation’s values are very much aligned with ours and we admire their dedication to providing families with support during a time of need. We are honored to support the Foundation.”
For most families, the fear of losing a home is second only to the sense of panic that comes with the need to care for a loved one who is suffering from a major illness – especially if they are a child. The MBA Opens Doors Foundation was developed as an industry association model for utilizing both expertise and resources to help individuals and families facing housing challenges associated with the significant cost of care for a seriously ill child.
Opens Doors is currently able to pass 100 percent of the donations it receives on to families in need of assistance. The Foundation’s ongoing relationship with Washington, D.C.’s Children’s National Medical System, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Cook Children’s, Texas Children’s, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, Akron Children’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, and Boston Children’s provide a network of care facilities to help identify potential grant recipients.
The MBA Opens Doors Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible. For more information about the Foundation or to make a donation, please go to http://www.mbaopensdoors.org.
The MBA Opens Doors Foundation was launched in October 2011, with an initial start-up contribution of $50,000 from the Mortgage Bankers Association and with MBA covering all administrative costs of the Foundation. The Foundation’s two initiatives assist families with critically ill or injured children by providing mortgage or rental assistance grants to help them keep their homes in the face of significant medical expenses. Having begun by serving families in the Washington, D.C. area, MBA Opens Doors has established a sound operational framework that will enable the Foundation to expand across the United States.
