Children’s Miracle Network is a non-profit organization that raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals. Donations to Children’s Miracle Network create miracles by funding medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of 17 million children each year.
With the help of a Children’s Miracle Network hospital in their community, children of all ages and backgrounds can receive treatment for every imaginable disease and injury—from asthma and broken bones to cancer and heart defects. Children’s hospitals are also on the front lines of research, education and outreach programs that keep millions of kids out of the hospital each year. Through its continuous efforts to help kids, Children’s Miracle Network has raised more than $3.4 billion to date, most of which is donated a dollar or two at a time by caring individuals.
The Foundation for Community Betterment is a national non-profit (501(c)(3)) organization founded in 2000 by a group of 30-40 year olds who wanted to “better” their communities by making an immediate, positive impact on the lives of needy individuals, families, or entire organizations who currently lack the means to succeed. Since its inception, Betterment has raised over $1.1 million and distributed proceeds to 115 individual and organization, both in the United States and abroad. The Foundation provides assistance to those who just need a little help -– like a family going through an unexpected illness or an organization rising to meet the next challenge. The hope is that our simple actions can create a ripple effect of goodness — when our recipients continue to positively impact those around them.
