SFFH has been working towards building relationships with area hospital social workers and doing outreach to other organizations involved with fund grants and sponsorship to ensure we can meet the financial needs of the families we serve in New Jersey. We also hold several fundraising events throughout the year to raise awareness and needed monetary donations.

We provide customized gifts for children to ensure they are receiving the right selection of gifts based on their likes and favorite things. We have a special application process that asks specific questions to help us come up with the perfect and thoughtful gift that will ensure smiles for warriors and siblings alike.

We hold several profitable fundraisers per year and rely on social media fundraising campaigns, direct donations to fund our Programs. We market our events to ensure wide reach and larger audience of attendees. We also partner with other organizations that provide nonprofit funding. We also do some speaking engagements to raise awareness and garner donations.

SFFH has a club of high school volunteers in our local high school and middle school to assist with the delivery of our custom baskets for our warriors and their families

We have a planning and events committee who is dedicated to meeting monthly and organizing fundraisers

SFFH has been able to provide financial assistance which includes medical, household expenses and burial cost assistance in the approximate amount of $204,000 to families in need.

SFFH has been able to personally deliver, 50 customized Package of Hope gifts to warriors and their siblings totaling approximately $30,000

We will keep hosting fundraisers, marketing our Foundation and completing grant request to ensure we are financially capable to help as many people as possible

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.
