Ford-Polly Gunderson Foundation History

The Ford-Polly Gunderson Foundation (FPG) is filing for non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation status with the goal of connecting uninsured and under-insured low-income individuals with compassionate and qualified clinical care professionals who provide animal-assisted mental health therapy.

FPG is the brain child of Chaz Stevens, co-founder of ESAD Int'l. Chaz noticed that individuals living in shelters with their assistance animal were at risk of being thrown out onto the streets. Striking a chord deep within inside, Chaz decided to address the situation one client at a time.

We can't fix the world, but today we can make all the difference in someone's life.

Currently, financial assistance is available only to US residents in limited service areas. Not available to California, DC, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Maryland residents.
