"It was a lifeline when I could not find help." - Anthony, client
With your support, we provided personalized guidance, tools and resources to help thousands of community volunteers execute 574 successful fundraising events, raising $9.5 million to help pay for uninsured medical and related expenses.
"We were overwhelmed with the situation and your organization made it easy for our friends to get fundraising off the ground for us." - Ann, caregiver
Funds raised through HelpHOPELive campaigns provided more than $7.9 million in needed financial assistance to more than 1,300 families, resulting in at least 166 lifesaving transplants and restoring independence and quality of life for 91 newly injured individuals.
"I just want to tell each and everyone of you how much you have meant to me during this time in my life when I didn't know if I would live or die. To have you there for the wonderful support, not just financially but emotionally...that means so much to someone in my health situation." - Bettsee, client
In addition to providing our fundraising expertise in times of need, your support enabled us to provide 74 one-time emergency grants, totaling $74,000, to people in need of immediate assistance to avert a medical crisis.
"To all the wonderful people that work and donate to HelpHOPELive: Without your help, our mortgage payment would have gone unpaid...we have our home to return to and it's all thanks to this organization." - Cheryl, emergency grant recipient
