About Us

Filippis Foundation

Wright & Filippis’ desire to improve peoples’ lives extends far beyond the company’s products and services, which is why we take an active role in every community we touch.

More than 30 years ago, we established the Filippis Foundation, a non-profit organization offering a number of services and programs that allow the disadvantaged and physically challenged the independence to see their dreams become a reality. Over the past three decades, the Filippis Foundation has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to charitable organizations, has supported a number of programs and even established their own programs.

A few programs are:

  • Michigan Health and Rehabilitation Conference
  • Gene Filippis Memorial Golf Benefit

Giving back to the community is just as important to Wright & Filippis as are the services provided, and that’s why the company is involved in various activities throughout the year.
