With the establishment of the MGBF, H.O.P.E. Grant in 2010, The Michael G. Belz Foundation has directly reached out and assisted brain tumor/brain cancer patients. The H.O.P.E. Grant was created to enable brain tumor/brain cancer patients to apply to receive financial assistance from the foundation to live and celebrate their lives just as Michael inspired those around him. When applying, potential recipients complete a short application and explain needs, complete a simple budget worksheet, and explain how the grant will offer H.O.P.E.
