The Jordan Thomas Foundation provides children affected by limb loss with the prostheses they need throughout childhood and adolescence, and serves as a caring resource, advocate and support system for these children and their families.
What do we do?
The Jordan Thomas Foundation seeks to help children in the Southeastern USA first but also provides support to children all over the United States as well as children from other countries who are in the US on medically sponsored visas.
The Board of Directors of the Foundation accepts applications, provided upon request through the website, and serves as the review and acceptance committee. Recipients must present documentation of financial need. Attending physicians and prosthetists are required to submit information on the application as well as the parent(s) or guardian.
The Foundation also has a one-time assistance program for young adults, ages 18-24 years old. The same application and requirements are used.
You can help Jordan by telling other people about his work. You may also send them to this website for more information. Also, you may donate to help him help children get the prostheses that they need. There is a ‘Donate’ button on this website. All proceeds go directly to help the children.
100% of gifts go to benefit children. The foundation estimates that it will need $100,000-$120,000 for each recipient to provide them with prostheses through age 18. We like to have most of these funds in the bank before we choose a new recipient as part of good stewardship practices. Administrative costs are being covered by one donor family along with some dividend income.
We welcome your help is providing prostheses for children. Our board of directors asks that you send us your idea for an event before you host it. Also, you may have the ‘proceeds’ from the event go to The Jordan Thomas Foundation’ but you may not have an event and use the foundation name. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more help. We will be happy to assist you.
We are frequently asked this question. We do not recycle prostheses as there are strict health guidelines in the USA. However, Jordan’s prosthesis in Orlando will take them and recycle them.

The Jordan Thomas Foundation has doubled the size of the rehab lab and also raises money for the prosthetic kits as well as supports two amputee soccer teams in that same area.
Jordan, as part of his leadership role with the foundation and in conjunction with his studies at Rollins College, is investigating additional opportunities and roles for the foundation throughout the world, including partnerships in other countries as well as outreach and advocacy leadership opportunities.
