Specific-Use Funds

Ariana Samaras Research Fund for Diffuse Pontine Gliomas – On January 3, 2007, the parents of Ariana “Ani” Samaras witnessed their beloved 4-year-old daughter succumb to an inoperable, incurable brain tumor called a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma.

A DIPG tumor remains a 100% fatal diagnosis to this day. Ani’s family wants to see that change. To honor her battle, they started The Ariana Samaras DIPG Research Fund. The money contributed goes to furthering the research into finding a way to make DIPGs a thing of the past.

Workplace Giving

Employees often look for the opportunity to make a contribution to the community. Workplace fundraising forges a greater bond among employees as they work together to benefit the charity of their choice.

Companies and their employees can begin Workplace Giving Campaigns with:

  • Matching Gifts
