We are a team with various abilities and disabilities. We work at both state and local levels to help all people reach their potential. We are parents, providers, engaged citizens, and friends. We are involved with various advocacy efforts, from statewide policy changes to community awareness.

We welcome individuals, businesses, and organizations to be part of the MoDE Foundation Coalition.

MoDE Foundation is excited to announce the newest project:

Special Education Legal Advocacy Fund

This fund will give families a chance to get help from a professional advocate or attorney when navigating special education issues.  Oftentimes, parents need someone with special education expertise to assist families and school teams to collaborate for better outcomes.        

For the next few weeks, many students will be out of school due to the coronavirus. We know this can be a challenging time. We have compiled a list of online resources for parents and students. This is an inclusive list created to help all students. 


MoDE Foundation's purpose is to empower individuals with disabilities and promote inclusivity through grants. Our goal is to have a variety of grants meeting a variety of needs.

Upcoming Events

Networking and raising money to support our grants are vital to the work of MoDE Foundation. Find out more about upcoming fundraisers and events.
