The Friends of Nathan Foundation (FONF) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation that was established to provide financial aid and support to children with cerebral palsy and other debilitating diseases. Since our inception in 2007 to support a single child with cerebral palsy, the FONF has reached out to over 30 families with needy children and has provided funds and volunteer support for:
- Respite Care
- Specialized Therapies
- Special Needs Furniture and Enabling Devices
- Home Modifications (such as handicap ramps and bathrooms)
- Service Dogs
- Financial Aid for Uncovered Medical Services and CobraPayments
- Special Needs Summer Camps

The FONF was founded and is managed by a Volunteer Board of Directors who direct the FONF's activities and charitable giving processes. The sources of revenue are from Donations and Charity Events, such as our Gala Ball and Golf Outing. By keeping our administrative expenses low, 94% of the money raised is able to be spent on the services we provide to the children and families we serve.
Board members are assigned to each family we serve to monitor progress and identify changing needs for the children. We provide our support to as many families in our community as possible without consideration to race, gender or religion.
