Two Foundation Grants Allow Mind Matters to Extend Services

Murphys, CA...Two major grants recently awarded Mind Matters by community foundations will allow the Murphys based clinic to extend its services in Amador and Tuolumne counties. The non-profit clinic exists to help individuals and families to cope with the consequences of autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD/ADD), and learning disabilities through treatment, counseling, and education, and to promote a better public understanding of these debilitating health issues....



The Amador Community Foundation has voted $3,000 to make these services available to youngsters over six who live in the county. In tandem with funds from Amador First 5, that provide for children five and under, many families that otherwise could not afford the clinic’s programs will be able to seek treatment.

The Sonora Area Foundation has issued a similar $8,000 grant to assist clinic patients that live in Tuolumne County.

“As Mind Matters and its programs become better known we are increasingly receiving requests from parents living in our neighboring counties for services,” states clinic CEO and Medical Director Dr. Ryan Thompson. “It is through the support of these community foundations that we are able to respond to many of these requests.”

Mind Matters has received grants from both foundations in previous years. “We see the renewal of these grants as an expression of confidence that the services we provide are having a positive effect on the families living in those areas,” says Thompson. “We are very appreciative and encouraged by these actions.”

The Amador Community Foundation was founded in 1999 by a major donation from Mrs. Helen Fallis. Its mission is to “Enhance the lives and future of the people in our unique community by connecting people who care deeply with causes that matter and to be the vehicle for philanthropic giving in Amador County.”

In Tuolumne, the Sonora Area Foundation was created in 1990 with generous gifts from Irving Symons and his sister, Elaine Symons Baker. Through the years it has attracted hundreds of additional donors who have invested in the community’s future. Their generosity allows the Foundation to continue to return substantial gifts to the community in grants and scholarships.

In years past, Mind Matters has also received grants from the Calaveras Community Foundation. With the recent changes in the foundation’s granting process the clinic, like many organizations, is no longer eligible.

Mind Matters is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations to help it extend its services are always welcomed. Information is available at www.mindmattersclinic.org or by calling 728-2184.
