Sally M Kingsbury Sarcoma Research Foundation Inc

aka Smksr Foundation   |   New Braunfels, TX   |  www.knockoutsarcoma.org

Mission

A Foundation was established in Sally M. Kingsbury's name to raise funds specifically for sarcoma cancer research. Her hope was that research for a cure for sarcoma cancer would continue beyond her life. Contributions made by individuals, corporations and grants to the Sally M. Kingsbury Sarcoma Research Foundation will provide funds for research facilities dedicated to finding a cure for sarcoma. Fundraising occurs through an annual knockout roses sale in the Spring of each year, fundraisers, annual sponsors, and being a recipient of the Tour de Gruene bike race in the fall of each year.

Since our inception in 2007, the SMKSR Foundation has granted over $152,000 to dedicated sarcoma cancer research facilities.

In 2014, our Foundation sponsored its first Sarcoma Medical Symposium in New Braunfels, Texas with the researchers and practicing doctors from the Adult Sarcoma Research Center at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. Over 50 participants attended the day long event.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal every year is to raise as much money as we can so we can grant it to research facilities that conduct sarcoma cancer research. To date, since our inception, we have granted over $152,000 for sarcoma cancer research, primarily at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

We depend upon several events throughout the year to raise our monies. They are:
1. Annual Knock Out Roses Sale in Gruene, TX and Central Texas,
2. Tour de Gruene Bike Race where we are the non-profit benefactor. Riders give us individual donations when they register, as well corporate donations from businesses,
3. Year End Mailer that goes back to our supporters at the end of the fiscal year for an additional donation.

We have an active volunteer board of directors and long list of volunteers to help us throughout the year.

Since our inception in 2007, we have granted over $152,000 for research facilities. Due to our profile in GuideStar, individual donations have come in and we have raised money through CrowdRise. The participant on CrowdRise found us through GuideStar. We had our biggest year in 2014 and hope to make a larger donation this year when we grant our money.
