How Your Donation Helps
The Connecticut Sports Foundation is a non-profit- IRS 501(c)3 corporation chartered by the State of Connecticut for the following purposes: (1) Provide financial assistance to needy cancer patients and their families, and (2) Raise money for cancer research. CSF continues to help hundreds of families right here in our communities who have been touched by cancer. Cancer patients and their families who find themselves financially burdened because of this dreaded disease turn to CSF for financial assistance with the basic needs of daily living; like heat, lights, shelter and medicine.
Many cancer patients and families are suddenly confronted with insurmountable bills at a time when focusing on healing is critical to their recovery. CSF is able to quickly and compassionately ease their burden with direct financial assistance. CSF has found that even small gestures of support can be the jumpstart a patient needs to fight back against their illness.
CSF is a unique organization in Connecticut that provides direct financial assistance to Connecticut cancer patients for rent/mortgage, utilities, car payments, medical co-pays, food, medications, fuel and transportation to and from hospital/medical centers. Patients are referred to CSF via a network of oncology social workers at Connecticut hospitals and cancer centers. Applicants are thoroughly screened by healthcare professionals who verify the financial need. Resources are provided with dignity and privacy, helping patients maintain self-respect while lessening the stress that may inhibit their recovery.
