Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Bear-Able Gifts

Bear-Able Gifts delivers gifts of toys, games and other fun items to children receiving medical treatment for cancer in a children’s hospital or oncology center.

Population(s) Served

The Helping Hands Fund provides financial assistance to families, helping them to give their children what they need most: a parent by their side to give a hug and wipe their tears during treatment. It offers assistance by making emergency bridge payments directly to utility companies to prevent shut-off and to landlords to prevent eviction, so that a parent can afford to miss work and care for his or her child and so that the family doesn’t fear for losing the safety and comfort of their home.

Population(s) Served

Therapeutic Services- providing general support to the families in areas where they specifically request that they need it most, as well as offering support groups to all members of the family that are battling through and are impacted by the childhood cancer diagnosis

Charting impact

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

Throughout 2018, CCRF was successful in obtaining connections within the local community and aims to continue doing so in an effort to generate recognition, regain and rebuild its charitable reputation, assist in recruitment of volunteers, and finally increase financial donations and sponsorships.

Additionally, through new and honest fundraising efforts, CCRF is hopeful that the money generated by this fundraising will allow CCRF to create new revenue opportunities to support its current programs.

In 2018, not only did CCRF work hard to obtain and retain local community connections, but also successfully terminate all affiliation and third-party telemarketing contracts. All fundraising efforts are being conducted in-house by members of the CCRF team, and community volunteers through honest and ethical ways.

CCRF also continues to offer events that benefit CCRF 100 percent, as immediate fundraising efforts. In 2019, CCRF has expanded these events through partnerships with individuals and businesses within the general community to attract more interest and attendance, therefore creating more community exposure to CCRF and its mission.

CCRF has a wealth of knowledge available to it through a conglomerate of individuals, all of which have non-profit knowledge, many with fundraising experience, and many with marketing and/or business degrees.

CCRF’s staff consists of five staff members, one full-time working 40+ hours a week, three part-time and a support group facilitator working two hours per month. They are all responsible in carrying CCRF through its day to day operations, and play an essential role in the future growth of the Foundation.

The Board of Directors meets regularly, with their main focus on creating and implementing the new therapeutic programs. The Friends of CCRF, a newly created group in 2019, meets periodically as well. Their main focus is assisting with the planning and implementing of fundraising events for the Foundation.

Obtaining steady funding, and community support are two of the most important resources that CCRF currently needs.

The year 2018 was a period of major transition for CCRF, program services were heavily restricted to cover the costs of professional and settlement fees for the successful termination of all affiliation and third-party telemarketing contracts. However, CCRF still managed to serve children with a cancer diagnosis and their families through the Helping Hands Fund and the national Bear-Able Gifts Program.

With a new direction for fundraising efforts, 2018 also saw the addition and creation of several fundraising events. These fundraising events included DIY classes, bus trips, and even annual events such as Drafts & Crafts. CCRF will continue to work toward the growth of its programs as new ways of honest and ethical fundraising efforts are created and strong community connections are further expanded and established.
