Our Mission & Principles

As part of our operation, Give Hope Foundation has made it a priority to keep our costs as low as possible. Our organization was founded under the principle that no member of the organization shall be compensated in any way whatsoever for their efforts.

We work hard to self-perform organizational functions such as web design and accounting. For other services, such as web hosting and printing, we work with business partners who provide these services for us. Donors know that their dollars are not used to simply pay our bills, but rather that their generosity goes where it should – directly to the cause.

Give Hope
Hero

We provide a combination of medical, emotional, and financial needs to families battling pediatric cancer. We assist with financial requests for necessities including mortgages, water bills, electricity bills, car loans, groceries, and gas. Our hero wishes are granted by gifting electronics, video games, toys, and more to help ease stress for families.

Apple products are gifted to heroes so they can safely stay in touch with loved ones, keep up with schoolwork, and have a fun escape while in treatment.

Give Hope

A portion of proceeds is added to the Give Hope Fund in hopes that one day, we will accumulate a large sum of money with which we can make a major impact in the Central Florida area in the battle against childhood cancer.
