Welcome to the In The Light
Here you will find out about the organization, how it got started and how In The Light Fund is actively raising funds to support families battling with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. All donations are tax-deductible and no amount is too small. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit more about the organization and the patients and families it benefits.
Hear what others have to say:
"...There are a lot of wonderful people out there willing to help but they are not well-known. Finding ITLF was pure coincidence and a God-send that prevented us from being evicted..."
"...working with In The Light Fund was absolutely great...Paige came over one day with loads of diapers and formula and toys...it was great to get the essential things that you stress about not having the money for..."
"Stay the way you are...you have been so great! Thank God you're around!"
In The Light Services:
The funds raised are broken up into three different categories. The bulk of the money, 85%, goes to financial assistance for families in the forms of, but not limited to, grocery cards, diapers, medical bills, gas cards, etc. 10% goes to gifts for the children, and the final 5% is set aside for administrative expenses. In The Light Fund has donated more than $40,000 directly to families in need!!
In addition to financial assistance for families, ITLF provides psychosocial support through a Registered Nurse who is available to educate families about diseases and prevention of infections.
The organization has an application that families may fill out. We have also made the applications available to numerous children's hospitals, including the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Philadelphia area hospices. Each application is reviewed by the In The Light board to decide the type and amount of funding we will give. Know of anyone in need? Please contact us!
