What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

1. Incorporate one additional fundraiser event to our current platform of our Spring Golf Tournament and Summer Casino Night events. This new event will be projected to occur in the Fall. 2. Increase our exposure in the community by supporting like non-profits and/or causes that involve community outreach. 3. Provide a larger assistance impact for the Central Valley Chapter of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and their events throughout the year. 4. Increase our level of communications with the health care providers who provide us with patient applications. This would include an increase in applications received to a goal set forth at this year’s first quarterly annual Board meeting of 25 applications for 2020-21.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to make a impact on our local pediatric blood cancer community by providing families with financial and emotional support.

Our current strategy is to stay focused on our primary annual fundraiser as well as growing slow enough to accommodate an additional two fundraisers during a calendar year. Our foundation board continues to search for various grants and other fundraising opportunities that adds to our positive perception throughout the community.

Our foundation board cares about the local blood cancer community and is very motivated to achieve our goals. We are capable for meeting our annual goals by staying in touch with our patient service partners and constantly marketing our organization and our cause.

We have established ourselves as a viable organization within the local medical community. We are known locally for our fundraising events and our assistance to local families as well as our support for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We are looking forward to holding two additional fundraisers annually as well as increasing our presence at local cancer related events.
