The Caitlin Robb Foundation was founded in July, 1995 in memory of a two-year old Tempe, Arizona toddler who lost a courageous battle in January, 1995 against neuroblastoma, the most common extracranial solid-tumor pediatric cancer. Though Caitlin's time was short, she lived her brief life joyfully and inspired those who knew her to do the same. Along with sweet memories, she left behind a legacy in the hearts of many to continue the search for improved treatments and ultimately cures for various forms of solid tumor pediatric cancer and to assist children and families battling all types of pediatric cancer.
The Foundation currently has two regional Boards, one in the State of Arizona and one in the Delaware Valley. Board members and volunteers are committed to putting their knowledge and experience to work in order to raise awareness about pediatric cancer in the communities they serve.
The Foundation believes in a grass-roots approach to fundraising. We combine this approach with a commitment to educate donors about the facts surrounding pediatric cancer and full disclosure of Foundation operations and accounting. Historically, over 95% of funds raised have gone directly to vital pediatric cancer research and patient need programming with less than 4% expended on administration. This "formula for success" results in a highly efficient charitable organization and a most gratifying giving experience for all donors.
Since its inception, the Foundation has supported a balance of carefully selected research centers and organizations including The University of Arizona Steele Memorial Children's Research Center, Arizona State University's Cancer Research Institute, Phoenix Children's Hospital, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House and Hospice of the Valley. The Foundation also provides direct assistance to families battling pediatric cancer through hospital social workers and pediatric oncologists.
Your support of the Caitlin Robb Foundation brings us closer to a cure for pediatric cancers and allows us to ease the burden for children and families. We thank you for your interest and your support.
