Funding in Action

Your Contributions Have Impact

One of the most rewarding aspects of contributing to the NAILBA Charitable Foundation is seeing the difference your donation is making. The Foundation is now in our second decade of planting seeds of change in the lives of needy and sick children and their families.

Your gift lasts a lifetime. Can we count on you to make a difference this year? Below is a sampling of some of the feedback the Foundation has received:

Down’s Syndrome Connection of the Bay Area
Sponsored by Jeff Mooers, H D Mooers & Co.
"On behalf of everyone at the Down Syndrome Connection of the Bay Area (DSCBA), thank you for your generous grant of $7500. This grant will be used to support our thriving Music Therapy program, and particularly will enable us to purchase new musical instruments and equipment to enrich this program for our participants with Down syndrome and their families."   
Nancy LaBelle, Executive Director

Ronald McDonald Care Mobile Dental Program
Sponsored by Jiggs Ramsey, Founder of the ASA Group in Arkansas
"This grant really touches my heart because my family has lived through such a tragedy. If Ronald McDonald House had existed then, it would have been a Godsend to our family. Ronald McDonald House removes the pressure of finding food, clothing, lodging and transportation so that families can focus on their children and ultimately aid in their recovery." 
Jiggs Ramsey, Founder of The ASA Group

Nico's Promise
Sponsored by Robin Landers, Landers-Stein
"Your support is vital to the mission of Nico’s Promise to provide bereavement support and resources to families during a most difficult time. Your thoughtful donation helps Nico’s Promise offer comfort and encouragement to loved ones when they need it most. They receive dedicated, skilled help as they travel the road of loss to that of renewed hope. Nico’s Promised makes a meaningful difference in the lives of siblings, parents and grandparents, and we are grateful for your part in making that possible."  - Michelle Boggs, President 

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation
Sponsored by Chad Milner, The Milner Group
"Your generosity makes Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s work possible – enables us to fund innovative new treatments for kids with brain cancer and provides critical support to families battling this disease today. PBTF’s Butterfly Fund is able to help pediatric brain tumor families with housing, utilities, gas cards and professional counseling. We are sponsoring more than 50 children in groundbreaking clinical trials for targeted safer treatments. 
Because of YOU, the PBTF community is there for families every single day, equipping, educating and empower them to navigate this difficult journey. Together we will defeat the deadliest disease facing this country’s children – giving kids with brain tumors the chance to fight for their dreams, not for their lives. I am humbled and grateful for your continued partnership. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of the courageous families we serve." Mark Edmiaston, Interim CEO and President

Sponsored by James Wong, Partners Advantage
