WE ARE A LOCAL CHARITY COMMITTED TO MAINTAINING YOUR TRUST

Boost funding and fundraising tools are limited to fundraising campaigns that have been approved through an application process validating residency, medical diagnosis and benefit fund account signers. Applications must be submitted through a fundraising champion in partnership with the individual/family benefitting from the fundraising campaign. We believe the extra time and upfront thought is well spent toward maintaining the integrity of all involved; fundraising champions, donors and recipients.
