Share the Joy


 “Share the Joy” is a contribution program which encourages businesses, organizations and individuals to donate $2,000 for the sponsorship of a family in crisis battling childhood cancer.  100% of the funds donated provide the family with check payments or gift cards to cover their basic human necessities such as medical, utilities, rent, mortgage, car, gas and food. “Share the Joy” ceremonies include the benefiting child, family members, JJCCF staff, donor(s) and optional guests.  In lieu of a ceremony, donors can request the story and photo of the benefiting child.  “Share the Joy” results are of impact both to the donor and to the benefiting family who share feelings of joy from either giving or receiving a meaningful gift.

Corporations are able to maximize the return on their marketing budget by implementing cause marketing strategy.  While making a tax-deductible donation, 100% of the amount benefits the sponsored family, and provides businesses an opportunity to communicate to employees, customers and the community that they are a good corporate citizens.

“Share the Joy” was created in 2010 by Board member, Derek Parsons.  The Foundation believes this program has potential to increase funds raised by 25% and directly impact its Financial Assistance and Advocacy Programs benefiting local families in crisis enduring pediatric cancer.
