Blue Note Fund
What is the Blue Note Fund?
The Blue Note Fund is a financial assistance program that provides one-time grants of $300 to colon cancer patients in need. At this time, awards will only be given to patients in active treatment. Grants will be awarded based on need.
How will my donation make a difference?
Your generous donation to the Blue Note Fund provides hope to patients and their families who desperately need it. 80% of your gift goes directly to Blue Note Fund recipients, and the other 20% supports the administrative costs that make this program possible.
