The American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics, & Pedorthics (ABC) awarded a $40,000 grant to the Orthotic and Prosthetic Activities Foundation (OPAF) and the First Clinics for website modernization and content development projects. As part of this award, OPAF will modernize its website and web-based systems to increase functionality, presentation, donor management, and data tracking software.

"We plan to completely overhaul our web-based systems to allow us to ease the financial burden of hosting a First Clinic," said Travis Young, CPO, OPAF president. "This award will allow us to develop a new donor management system that allows donors to create an integrated giving account, manage and track their donations, and produce itemized yearly giving statements on the OPAF First Clinics website. In addition, this funding will allow us to develop new educational content and exceptional professional video and photography for First Clinics that will be helpful to both patients and allied health professionals."

"ABC is pleased to be able to support OPAF in this important step to improve the experience of First Clinics, not only for attendees but those dedicated practitioners and practices that support this important work. The ABC mission of changing lives is certainly supported by the work done by OPAF and First Clinics," said Cathy Carter, ABC executive director.
