Leadership (GuideStar ExchangeThe GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more. January, 2014)

Dr. Don W. Shoendorfer

Term:

Since Mar 2011

Profile:

Don Schoendorfer, President and Founder of Free Wheelchair Mission, worked in biomedical engineering for many years after graduating from MIT. In late 1979 Don and his wife, Laurie, traveled to Morocco. There, Don saw a woman dragging her body across a dirt road. This sad vision stuck with Don long after he left Morocco. Although he worked as an engineer over the next twenty years, he never forgot about the woman he had seen and began thinking of how he could help provide wheelchairs to those in need. In 1999, he made a commitment to find a solution for those with disabilities in developing countries who have no access to wheelchairs. After designing an affordable wheelchair, Don founded the non-profit Free Wheelchair Mission in 2001.

Leadership Statement:

Our mission is to transform lives through the gift of mobility as motivated by Jesus Christ. Our wheelchairs cost just $71.88 to manufacture and deliver, and are provided at absolutely no cost to the recipient. Thanks to the support of our donors, Free Wheelchair Mission has been able to manufacture and ship over 700,000 wheelchairs to those with disabilities all over the world.

The Free Wheelchair Mission has distributed over 700,000 since the mission began in 2001.

Program Short-Term Success:

Thanks to our donors, we were able to distribute over 75,000 during our last fiscal year ending June 30, 2013.

Program Success Monitored by:

We monitor our success by how many lives we are able to change throught the gift of mobility. Every time someone receives a wheelchair, we consider this a huge success!

Program Success Examples:

There are so many examples of how a wheelchair can change someone's life. Children who were unable to leave their homes can now attend school. Adults who had no way to support themselves are now able to work and enjoy so many activities that many of us take for granted.
