What is The B Fund?
The B Fund is a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate and empower participants to use their time, talents and treasures to raise awareness and funds for families caring for critically ill children. Our programs are designed to highlight the impact of single and collective acts of kindness. Activities are designed to grow a culture of caring, while providing meaningful experiences for children and their families. All proceeds are donated locally, to provide financial and emotional support for families caring for critically ill children.
Why We Exist
The seeds of inspiration for The B Fund grew from the experiences of parents who cared for their critically ill child in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Boston Children’s Hospital. It became clear to them that on top of daunting medical costs, there are many additional expenses associated with having a child in the hospital that can put a family under further financial and emotional stress. They realized that there is an urgent need to lift these unnecessary burdens off of caregivers and families so they can focus on what’s truly important: the well-being of their child.
Through their passion, The B Fund took flight, further fueled by like-minded parents who wanted to support families caring for critically ill children and include their kids in hands-on philanthropy from an early age. Together, they were determined to:
- Provide financial and emotional support to local families caring for a critically ill child by covering the costs of resources like parking, travel, hotel, education, meals, and other extraordinary needs.
- Create a program designed to empower parents and educators with the necessary tools to teach children the value of philanthropy through an experiential learning program.
- Grow the culture of giving and philanthropy not only in one’s home but in the community that surrounds them.
