Partnership Opportunities

12 Oaks Foundation’s mission is to provide grants to help defray the cost of sports and extracurricular activities for children in families suffering temporary financial hardship related to ongoing cancer treatment. While there are many local and national agencies providing cancer patients and families financial support, 12 Oaks Foundation is the only organization that keeps children, ages 8-18, affected by cancer engaged in their current sports and other extracurricular activities. We could not do this important work without the help from partners like you.

Based in Grayslake, IL, 12 Oaks Foundation is a registered tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. For each dollar donated to the Foundation, 92.5 cents directly benefits children and their families.

Ambitious Vision

By the Year 2020, 12 Oaks Foundation’s mission is to provide family assistance on a national scale. To make this a reality, the Foundation requires significant capacity building. Funding from partners and sponsors will support much-needed efforts to reach these aggressive goals.

Partnering Benefits Your Company
