The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established by Robert & Kristen Malfara in honor of their precious son Morgan, who has a very rare form of Leukodystrophy. All officers and board members serve as volunteers, and because we do not use our charitable contributions for salaries, the majority of our proceeds go towards meeting our program goals.
