Limbitless Solutions

Limbitless Solutions is dedicated to empowering individuals through personalized, creative, and expressive bionics. The interdisciplinary laboratory environment is a space where UCF undergraduate students collaborate with their peers and staff to create 3D-printed expressive bionics for children and adults with limb differences. Program expansion now includes veteran and first responder focused clinical trials.

 

With a $36,000 grant from the Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation, Limbitless secured the final funding needed to renovate a mixed purpose facility to accommodate production, patient visits and fittings, and increased student design participation. The new lab space will also provide a one-of-a-kind secure arm delivery and assessment room that will give bionic kids and their families a dedicated location to work with healthcare professionals in private.

 

Renovation and installation of the new facility is scheduled to be complete by the end of Summer 2021.

Delivering Good

Delivering Good unites retailers, manufacturers, funders and individuals to provide people impacted by poverty and tragedy with new merchandise, effectively distributed through a network of agency partners to offer hope, dignity and self-esteem to at-risk children, families and individuals.

 

The Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation’s $75,000 grant to Delivering Good in FY 2020 was leveraged to bring more than $2.7 million worth of brand name products into Central Florida homes, made even more impactful due to the shutdowns and unavailability of deliverable goods during the pandemic of 2020.

 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the ability to respond to community partners and at-need populations have at times turned the crisis into unexpected opportunity for more effective assistance.

The Winter Park Public Library

The Winter Park Public Library is writing a new chapter in the educational and cultural life of the City with the building of a 21st century, state-of-the-art library facility. This oldest public library in Central Florida was selected by the Aspen Institute as one of five libraries across the country to engage in dialogues advancing new thinking about the role of public libraries in the future. The Aspen Dialogue fueled the planning phase for the new building and helped attract one of the world’s most influential architects to design it. Sir David Adjaye, who is perhaps best known in the United States for his design of the National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall, has been working with library and city leaders for the past two years in preparation for the new library, which will be part of The Canopy project in Martin Luther King Jr. Park.

 

The Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation committed the first and largest grant to date for the new library. The library board is leveraging this $750,000 matching grant to fulfill its commitment toward building the “Library of the Future” for the residents of Winter Park.
