We Exist to Support Families in Crisis

Our primary aim is to assist with financial needs that arise as a result of a medically needy or chronically ill child. We also assist families with the costs associated with funeral expenses related to the death of a child.

The Do More Foundation can assist with the expenses that are incurred and not covered by traditional health insurance. Some examples of this would be: assistance with rent/utility bills, assistance with meals while at the hospital, assistance with gas cards for travel to and from the hospital, assistance with non-covered medical supplies.

Our purpose is to offer hope, encouragement, and support to families facing a medical crisis. We encourage. We connect. We supply.

Our Vision

Over the next 10 years we extend hope and support to over 500 families who are facing financial struggles as a result of a medically challenging child.

Our Mission

We provide hope and support for families in crisis. We encourage, connect, & supply these families so they can focus on what matters most – their child – without the disctraction of being weighed down by financial stress.

Where It All Began

In 2005 our family found ourselves grieving the loss of a child from an umbilical cord accident shortly before birth. As a young family we were suddenly thinking about funeral arrangements, something we had not planned for up until that point.

Two short years later, our two-year-old daughter was diagnosed with a rare congenital abnormality that had previously gone undetected. Many surgeries and hospitalizations later, we came to realize the great expenses that come with an ill child, many that aren’t covered by health insurance. When a child is hospitalized, a parent misses work, meals are often eaten in a hospital cafeteria instead of at home, extra gas is used for trips to and from the hospital, and other expenses arise that you don’t consider until you find yourself in that situation.

Our family decided it was time for us to Do More to help others. We provide financial grants to families that find themselves with a sick child or families that are going through the loss of a child.

 

We strive for...

Founded in 2013, The Do More Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) charity that exists to help families with financial needs that are a result of their child’s medical condition. We also provide families with funds to assist in the cost related to funeral expenses following the death of a child.

Grants are given on the basis of need and financial availability from the foundation
