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

regularly volunteer with Eversight Michigan and Gift of Life Michigan at their events.

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.
