Welcome to our website
Michael’s Miracle Foundation is a non profit 501c3 organization that was created after losing our 13yr old Son Michael to a gun accident in March of 2017. Michael was an organ donor and with his gift of life he saved 5 lives. Our mission is to provide sports and academic scholarships to the youth in our community. We promote organ donation, gun safety, and see something say something awareness.

We would like to congratulate Sebastian Madrigal for being awarded the Play for Michael sports scholarship on June 8, 2022. Sebastian was nominated by Carrie Maple and after meeting him we could not agree more on why she did. Sebastian is a proud recent Galt high graduate, In 2021 he was a team captain for Football and track. He received an all league badge and most valuable player award at the fall sports banquet of Galt High School. Sebastian helps out his school and community by staying before and after school to help set up for FFA monthly meetings. He plans on going to college to study to become a Pharmacists. While doing this he plans to either play football or run track for the rest of his college career. During the weekends Sebastian is constantly voluntarily setting up and staying after hours for either 7v7 tournaments or Under the Radar Camps. He keeps score or is running drills and giving back to younger athletes. Sebastian has a huge passion for playing football and giving back to others. Congratulations Sebastian!
“I am very honored and grateful to have received a scholarship from Michaels Miracle Foundation. Mikey was an amazing person who unfortunately left us too soon but his legacy still lives and he will never be forgotten. I am very thankful for the scholarship as it has helped me in advancing in my softball goals. I would like to thank Mikeys mom in giving me the opportunity to further myself and get to where I want to be. Thank you so much to Sylvia and Michaels Miracle Foundation for helping me to achieve my goals!”
"It was truly an honor to receive a scholarship from Michael's Miracle Foundation, not only did I get the chance to get to know Michael but I got to know what kind of athlete he was. Michael was an amazing football player who showed a lot of heart and because of Michael's Foundation I was able to achieve some of my goals. I will forever play in Michael's honor."
"Getting a scholarship from Michael's Miracle Foundation was motivating, it made me feel accomplished to have been able to win an award with just a few words about myself and my dreams. being able to see that someone listened to my writing and was able to understand the motivation it would give me to chase my dreams. Receiving a scholarship in money or in other fees can help push other people to do their best when it comes to school. This experience has made me reach for my goals and try my hardest to stay ahead of my grades and my extracurricular activities for a better future."
Receiving a scholarship from the Michael's Miracle Foundation was truly a blessing and couldn't have happened at a more crucial time in my life. Michael was a very talented athlete with a huge outgoing personality. Being able to represent my friend since grade school is such a tremendous honor. I am very thankful for Michael's mother Silvia and being nominated by Carrie Maple. Michael's Miracle Foundation allowed me to further my education as well as my athletic career, without having to worry about the little expense's college requires, which is why I continue and will forever " Play for Michael".
