Financial support for families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants

Hello Funds Fans!  We have a number of fabulous funding opportunities coming your way in the next few days!

Today we highlight the David Foster Foundation; dedicated to providing financial support to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. In addition to helping families with their non-medical expenses, the Foundation strives to increase organ donor registration through public awareness campaigns in Canada and the United States.

The Foundation will provide funding for non-medical expenses for the families of children needing life-saving organ transplants and provide support up to the child’s 19th birthday, from their initial assessments to postoperative check-ups.  This may include: transportation costs, accommodation, long distance phone calls and meals and groceries for the family while they are in another city for their child’s transplant or related care; clothes and basic personal items if the family has to leave their hometown suddenly for treatment or for their child’s transplant; and rent or mortgage assistance on a short-term basis if necessary while the family is in another city or province for surgery or medical treatment.

If you know of a family struggling with this heart-wrenching situation, please share this information!
