Tuesday Treasure #47 FUND IT FORWARD

This organization was founded by two mothers of special needs children who saw an amazing opportunity to help families with children like their own.

Many times, families must sacrifice time, money, freedom and sleep in order to provide a safe and secure environment for their special needs child. FUND IT FORWARD was born out of a desire to help families obtain the medical or adaptive equipment needed to create a functional environment for their special needs children. Rose and Jackie believe the majority of money raised by their volunteers should go towards the needs of the children and their families. They want to see families in situations similar to theirs benefit from this organization. Rose and Jackie donated their own time and money to start FUND IT FORWARD and vow to continue to keep the needs of each individual child as their primary focus and priority. If FUND IT FORWARD is unable to assist you with the support you are seeking, they will guide you to the right channels to receive aid. FUND IT FORWARD wants families to thrive and succeed regardless of their special circumstances.



There are several advantages to fundraising with FUND IT FORWARD:


1.Fundraising support to help you create a successful event.

2.Providing your donors with a taxable deduction through a 501(c)(3) approved organization.

3.Promoting your fundraising event through publicity on our website and social media.

4.Guiding you through the application process to submit your medical or adaptive equipment request.

5.Obtaining discounts on medical equipment not available to the general public.

6.Encouraging and supporting families through a community network of advocates for special needs.


You are not raising money for your own equipment; you are raising money for future families in need. The mission of their organization is to help families within their community of families and any additional money raised will be funded forward to another family in need. This is the founding principal behind their organization. So if this seems like something you would be interested in check out !!!
