What we aim to solve

The Maryam Parman Foundation for Injured Children provides various forms of aid to injured children and their families. Each child’s needs are assessed before an individualized funding and treatment plan is formed.Our Founder, through her work representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases, sees children who have experienced a catastrophic injury often times not get the compensation they need in order to cover their medical expenses or necessary future medical care. She decided to do something about this problem by founding The Maryam Parman Foundation for Injured Children, a foundation that will solely focus on funding healthcare services and providing mobility accommodations to children in need. The families of these injured children need to make large purchases and life-style adjustments to cope with these injuries, which can put a serious financial strain on families. Our Founder decided to take action and help these families by founding MPFIC in hopes to change children's lives.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

The Maryam Parman Foundation for Injured Children aims to help children who suffer from catastrophic injuries by taking some of the financial stress off of their families while they help their children heal. We fund healthcare services that insurance doesn't cover, as well as provide families with handicap accessibilities that insurance doesn't cover. Families have enough to worry about when their child is severely injured, and they shouldn't have to struggle to afford some of the treatment and tools the child will need to heal properly. Every child deserves the best, same chance at healing, and that is what our foundation aims to give them.

Our foundation aims to help families in California who have a child suffering from a severe injury. We focus primarily on low-income families, but each child is assessed on a case-by-case basis and an individualized plan is developed for them. In order to keep our programs funded, we depend on donations from the general public and income from our fundraisers.

Our fundraising covers our expenses and grants at this time. We have a great community of supporters that allows us to keep helping children suffering from severe injuries.

As a brand new organization, our progress indicators are simply growth each year. We hope to grow by at least 10% each year in grants provided to children in need.

Only founded in December of 2017, we have already provided $62,000 worth of grants in 2018 to children in need. In 2019, we awarded $84,717.
