Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

One in eight couples in the United States deal with some form of infertility and will require either costly medial intervention or will have to adopt in order to have children. The cost of one round of IVF can cost more than $15,000 per round. Adoption just as much. In all of these cases, there is no guarantee that spending the money will result in having a child. Since infertility is rarely covered by insurance providers, couples will either forego becoming parents, take out second mortgages, or take out high interest rate loans. Infertility has also been a topic that people have been afraid to talk about, which results in loneliness, sadness, and depression.

Charting impact

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

The Hope for Fertility Foundation is aims to help couples pay for their treatments or adoption by providing financial assistance through grants.

We are also trying to raise awareness so that the public is aware of the struggles that couples go through. This helps couples not feel so alone in their journey.

In order to provide grants, we need to raise the funds to provide them. The funds are raised through fundraising events, through private contributions, and through grants from other foundations or charities. We have found good success through Facebook birthday fundraisers. In order to encourage more of these Facebook fundraisers and private contributions, we are focusing our efforts on our social media presence. A new initiative includes a Public Relations push by trying to get news agencies, radio stations, and printed media to feature our cause.

We have a good group of individuals who are savvy with the major social media platforms and have connections with some bigger social media influencers. We have also established a Public Relations committee that will focus their efforts on reaching out to media outlets and pitching story ideas and requesting interviews.

In the past year and a half we have managed to raise $10,000 through social media, and over $20,000 in private contributions from individuals who have discovered our cause through social media channels. We have also been invited to be live on the air for a local radio station. We have seen year-over-year growth of at least 100% for the past two years.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
