Piper’s Angels Foundation
COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund
May 12th Update***
Since the launch of our COVID campaign we have raised over 11 thousand dollars to go towards the Piper’s Angels Foundation, helping us keep our programs running and in turn allowing us to continue helping the CF Community. This campaign will stay active as the global pandemic has completely changed the narrative on the rest of our year’s fundraising events. Thank you for making a difference!
We truly hope everyone is safe and well during this unprecedented time in history.
Given the enormity of this global crisis, everyone has been impacted in one way or another, especially the cystic fibrosis community. Now those CF Warriors and families need our help more than ever!
Due to Covid-19, many nonprofits have been forced to cancel or postpone their fundraising events which act as their main sources of income. Piper’s Angels has sadly had to do the same and postpone our annual flagship fundraiser, The Crossing For Cystic Fibrosis, until June 2021. This postponement represents a 90% loss of our annual revenue to support all of our programs.
At the same time, due to the life threatening implications of Covid-19 on those with CF, we’ve seen a significant increase in applications for our Urgent Financial Assistance (UFA). UFA grants provide immediate financial support to assist with necessary costs such as paying for:
- Medical equipment
- Auto repairs
- Lung transplants and so much more!
Our foundation is committed to ensuring that those in our community are able to maintain financial stability and provide day-to-day necessities for their families during this crisis. Many of these dire needs, if not met, can have a drastic negative impact on the health and wellbeing of someone with CF as well as their family. As we have been working diligently to ensure our foundation keeps running smoothly and our CF families are cared for, funds have drastically decreased during these times.
We ask you to consider joining us by donating to our Emergency Operating Fund today! Your contribution will ensure we can continue to stay afloat and help CF families in need.
You can support this amazing CF community by rallying with us for #GivingTuesdayNow -- a global day of giving and unity, set to take place on May 5, 2020
*As a response to the emergency needs caused by COVID-19, #GivingTuesdayNow was formed as a day designed to drive an influx of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.
*Through the generosity of Charity Go Fund Me, funds will be matched for those organizations that qualify by raising $1,000 by May 5.
With infinite gratitude and love,
The Piper's Angels Foundation
