Your support is vital to provide a "home away from home" for families with critically ill children, and annual donations are used as operating and program support primarily in the fiscal year in which they are received. However, we continue to turn away over 1,100 families per year in their time of need. Thanks to the generosity of our community and because of significant estate gifts, we are fortunate to have unrestricted assets at least seven times our annual budget. These critical reserves are the essential foundation of our ability to serve more families in the future. As such, they are treated as endowment and will help support strategic future expansion and the increased operating support which future expansion will entail.
