The Harbor Foundation provided assistance to many after Hurricane Harvey and still held its annual Butterfly Release events in Lake Charles and Beaumont this spring. We are currently working to raise funds so more assistance can be provided.
The foundation is changing its process for providing assistance going forward. While our mission is essentially the same, the channels through which that assistance is provided will be different.
Effectively immediately, assistance applications made directly to the foundation will no longer be accepted. Instead, the foundation will be awarding grants to continue our mission through other non-profit organizations in the communities in which we have a presence.
The Harbor Foundation was established in 2006 to assist with providing hospice education to the community. Since then, the Foundation has grown exponentially. Through the raising of funds, increasing donations, and an emerging presence, Harbor Foundation is able to help meet the financial, physical, and emotional needs of our community.
What started as a response to a need for hospice education has evolved into a flourishing non-profit organization. With bi-annual educational and fundraising events, the Foundation continues to grow. The Foundation is also growing in response to what their families need during this delicate period of their lives.
Harbor Foundation, Inc. is organized and shall be operated exclusively for charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code. Specifically, Harbor Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for terminally ill patients, assisting bereaved family members, providing education about hospice benefits, and such other charitable acts as may be approved by the Board of Directors.
Assistance will not be provided from the Foundation directly to hospice patients but instead through local charities that can apply for a grant. click here. Applicants for Foundation funds will be directed to the local charities.
In order to meet our mission, Harbor Foundation is funded through event fundraisers, individual contributors, corporate donations, and grants.
