Most Recent Audit
Nearly $800,000 in emergency financial assistance was distributed to 1,400 adults with cancer and their families. More than 110 youth attended Kids Kamp in early August – our largest group yet. As a direct result of the Kids Kamp experience, 81% of the campers reported feeling more comfortable communicating with their family about cancer. Family Consult, the newest Facing Cancer Together program, provides an immediate response to an individual family’s needs. Facing Cancer Together's Education and Support Series delivered a modified format and curriculum through quarterly meetings in partnership with Coborn’s Cancer Center located in St. Cloud Minnesota.
Current Goals
Angel Foundation will continue to provide emergency financial assistance grants to adults with cancer currently undergoing treatment, and living or treated in the seven-county metro area. Angel Foundation will continue to distribute emergency grants through Margie’s Fund to adult cancer patients facing unique circumstances above and beyond our current Emergency Financial Assistance Program. Launch Family Consult program to provide an immediate response to an individual family’s needs after a cancer diagnosis. Plan and implement the annual Kids Kamp, a camp for children and teens living with a parental cancer diagnosis. Provide a two-day Urban Adventures Kids Kamp for children ages 5-12 through two day-long retreats held at Angel Foundation.
Community or Constituency Served
When cancer strikes, Angel Foundation provides two programs that help foster strength, resilience and hope. Both programs help adults living with cancer and their families gain a level of control over lives during a time of great uncertainty. Through our Financial Assistance program, adults in active cancer treatment receive emergency financial assistance for non-medical basic needs such as food, gas, utilities, rent or mortgage payments. Facing Cancer Together provides education and support to families facing a parental cancer diagnosis.
Geographic Area Served
Seven county metro area of the Twin Cities, Minnesota.
