Where Does the Money Go?
With no administrative costs, our foundation is able to maximize our contributions to local families. Our organization operates on overhead at less than the average charitable organization. The pie chart below reflects our nominal overhead expenses in comparison to our hardship assistance and scholarship program awards.
Since 2012, we have been able to award financial assistance to 100% of our hardship applicants. In addition, we were able to provide other local children currently battling cancer a special gift through our Golden Heart Christmas Outreach Program. Through our emergency relief fund, we were able to provide immediate basic necessities to those in dire need.
With the Jensen Daniel Byrd Memorial Scholarship Fund, we are proud to offer a graduating senior at Gulf Shores High School pursuing a degree in medicine a financial award. We believe that every medical personnel that come into contact with a cancer patient play a vital role in treatment. We support the choice to pursue a medical career.
