April, 2015 “Family Support Fund” Initiative Report

The Zane’s Foundation Board Members are pleased and honored to report what has occurred for this quarter’s “Family Support Fund” Initiative.  Letters and checks have already been mailed out and the total of funds awarded to eight families here in Northeast Ohio was $8276!   This funding was awarded to their providers; we never give checks to families!

Two recipients received iPads and two received payments to allow them to attend summer camp/summer programming.  The rest of the funding was for different kinds of therapy:  speech/language, O/T, brain-balance and music.

A very big, big hug goes out to our “Family Support Fund” Committee!  They work behind the scenes and process the files.  We appreciate you so much!  They have received the files for this quarter already and it will be another large funding quarter!  Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters!!!
