JJCCF Highlights 2011

Financials: In 2011 JJCCF’s budget grew 32% and contributions grew 19% thanks to the support of generous individuals, private foundations and corporations. Almost every penny raised during 2011 was applied to our Emergency Financial Assistance, Advocacy & Share the Joy Programs.

Financial Assistance Program: In 2011 the program benefited 318 children and family members-view photos. JJCCF prides itself on solving the immediate needs of children and families going through their most dreadful time. Without this ongoing program, many children undergoing cancer treatment would not have access to basic human necessities during times of crisis. JJCCF is the only non-profit in the South Florida tri-county area providing emergency financial assistance to families in crisis enduring all pediatric cancers.

Advocacy Program: In 2011 the Advocacy Program raised over $36,800 benefiting 55 individuals impacted by childhood cancer. JJCCF advocates for children in need fighting cancer to find alternative channels of support.  The Foundation reaches out for outside support for these children and family members needing urgent assistance to survive a temporary crisis. These children have already received financial assistance, but their needs exceed JJCCF’s limited resources.

Share the Joy Program: “Share the Joy” raised $24,000 benefiting 53 children and family members in 2011. The fundraising program created in April 2010 encourages local businesses, groups and individuals to donate $2,000 to sponsor a family in crisis fighting childhood cancer.
