The Cade Foundation has posted information on the 2010 Family Building Grant. It looks like the applications will be posted to their website starting on July 15, 2009 and will remain available until the due date of September 15, 2009. Most likely the recipients will be notified in mid-late November. If you know of any families struggling with infertility who could benefit from this grant PLEASE forward this website, http://www.cadefoundation.org/, to them and encourage them to apply when the time comes. Remember this grant offers struggling families up to $10,000 for domestic adoption or fertility treatment.
We will also be posting a website soon and looking for volunteers to help out at our fundraising events. What we do in 2009 will make a BIG difference in how many families the Cade Foundation is able to help in 2010. Will you be a part of that???
Our first event will most likely be in April or May. We want to host a LARGE garage sale using a public parking lot (church hopefully) in order to gain the best exposure. We will need volunteers to donate items to sell as well as helpers to set up, work the sale and clean up. This will most likely be a Friday & Saturday event. Bigger events to come but this will be a quick way to start our fundraising!!!
We are excited!!! PS: Shots start Sunday (Super Bowl Sunday)!!!
