Our Mission
Founded in 2006, the mission of Kids Courage Foundation is to provide financial assistance to the families of children (newborns up to the age of eighteen) suffering from serious, catastrophic and life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Our purpose is to financially assist families that are not covered by private medical insurance and/or government medical assistance programs. Costs covered by Kids Courage Foundation include medical equipment, medications, transportation to and from the hospital and housing costs when medical treatment is at a facility far from home as well as covering costs such as daycare for the ill/injured child’s siblings.
Our Vision
Our vision is to assist in offsetting the various costs associated with caring for a child with life-threatening illnesses and injuries. Fulfillment of this vision is being pursued via partnerships with exceptional organizations, businesses and institutions who share our passion to make a difference; and to educate the public about the importance of lending a hand to families whose lives have been impacted by the catastrophic illness or injury of a child. Through these efforts we seek to help alleviate various financial burdens associated with pediatric care while enhancing the quality of life for these children and their families who come to us for assistance.
Our Values
Our responsibilities are to children with catastrophic illness or injuries, their families, and to those organizations and individuals that have committed their resources toward our Mission. In order to fulfill these responsibilities, we are committed to an unwavering set of values. These values are the standards that we use to form our decisions and these standards are upheld by all individuals working with Kids Courage Foundation, and by continually evaluating the executives and staff in their adherence to these values.
Our values are one of the most important components of who we are and directly impact our ability to achieve our Mission, while also solidifying our reputation.

  • A commitment to provide children and their families with the financial assistance necessary to purchase the equipment, medication and services needed to continue pediatric care of a seriously and/or life-threateningly ill or injured child.
  • A commitment to respect the ethnic, religious and lifestyle differences of children, their families, our colleagues, and our donors.
  • A commitment to our donors that every dollar donated will be wisely spent toward achieving our Mission of alleviating the financial burdens associated with caring for a child with catastrophic illnesses and injuries.
  • A sense of urgency to make an impactful and immediate difference.
  • A commitment to excellence, innovation and outreach in all that we do.
  • A commitment to honesty, integrity, and accountability in our actions and decisions.
  • A commitment to social and civic responsibility on a local, state, and national level.

To effectively live up to these values, every member of the Kids Courage Foundation must adhere to promoting these values in all that we do. Funding is available to children who are served by hospitals, clinics, schools, support groups, religious organizations, healthcare centers that are affiliated with the Kid’s Courage Foundation.
