The Mission of the Ian Clemens Foundation is threefold.
We provide ASSISTANCE, promote AWARENESS and offer
Our foundation assists families with children battling cancer by providing financial
assistance to children’s cancer centers emergency funds (funds available to help families
with travel expense, lodging, loss of income, and medical expense). We know first hand
how stressful both emotionally and financially this can be. We also know how special
Ian’s interactions were with the families on the floor at C.S. Mott while he stayed there.
We aim to increase awareness for organ and tissue donation. Ian registered as an organ
donor the day he received his license. This was very important to him. He was able to be
an organ donor and provided the gift of sight to two people. Our board members
Michelle and Alan publicly speak on behalf of donor families.
We provide scholarship opportunities to well-deserving Wayne county high school
students pursuing a degree in Engineering both at University of Michigan (through The
Ian Clemens Memorial Scholarship for Future Engineers – University of Michigan
College of Engineering) and other public Michigan universities.
Continuing Ian’s Vision
