CTG Foundation

Children's Therapy Group Foundation (CTG Foundation) was established to provide scholarships to fund therapy services for CTG families unable to afford the full cost of services and assist in purchasing costly equipment.

CTG Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization.  All donations are tax-deductible. Your donation will help provide quality therapeutic services for children with disabilities and special needs and their families regardless of their ability to pay.

CTG Foundation is supported by private donations, donor choice United Way and community grants.  Contributions can be made directly to CTG Foundation or as a donor choice on the United Way campaign donor choice card.  Simply write in our name on your donor choice card to make your United Way donation.  We hold 2 fundraising events each year.  In January and June, we host a sensory carnival at CTG.  This fun event promotes sensory processing and is an opportunity for children both with and without special needs to experience our fun sensory activities.  In conjunction with the carnival events, we hold a Fund drive campaign by mail, which is our primary source of funding.  Of course, donations are welcome throughout the year.  Some people enjoy making a donation in memory of a loved one or as a great gift for that “hard to buy for” person.  We also appreciate donations of therapy supplies and equipment.

If a family is in need of financial assistance for therapy, they must complete a scholarship application form and return it to the CTG office. If the family has health insurance, they will need to contact their agent to determine if their insurance covers their therapy. The scholarship program is the payer of last resort; therefore, insurance coverage must be explored. The family will be responsible for making a monthly co-payment, the amount of which is agreed upon by CTG and the family. The CTG Foundation will pay the balance of therapy costs each month after the co-payment and the insurance payment (if applicable) have been received for the month.
