Get Involved

Make a Donation

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, their family's whole life crumbles down. There is physical, mental, and financial stress involved in providing for the child's care. Parents not only have to pay for their child's medical needs but also sustain their regular household needs.

At Finley Foundation, we recognize the financial pressure cancer creates and have made it our mission to help relieve the financial stress for families affected by cancer. We extend our reach to families in the Chicagoland area.

How does this donation help?

Donations help families take care of their children, and some proceeds also go towards helping pay for the Courage Kits.

Tax Benefits on Donations

We are a Not For Profit (NFP) public charity that is exempt from federal income tax under IRC Section 501(c)(3). Our donors can deduct contributions they make to us under IRC Section 170.

Attend an Event

Every year, Finley Foundation hosts a range of events to help raise money for families battling cancer. We have two main events, The Lights & Ladders Brigade, and Finley Fest, both held in the second half of the year. Additionally, we also host other smaller events throughout the year.

How does attending these events help?

You can help us by either attending an event or spreading the word about our event with your family and friends.

Contribute to Stem Cell Courage Kits

Our foundation works closely with families coming into Lurie Children's Hospital for a stem cell transplant. Children who undergo this medical procedure as part of their cancer treatment typically go through several challenges and experiences.

How do the Stem Cell Courage Kits work?

We have curated an Amazon Wish List of items to gift to children and families getting a stem cell transplant in order to make this experience as smooth as possible for them. This list includes an Amazon fire stick, laundry items, a blanket, coffee, window crayons, decorations for the room, and more! To purchase items for donation, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the button below to view the Amazon Wish List.

  2. Add items to your cart, and proceed to checkout.

  3. Deliver items to the Finley Forever Foundation's Gift Registry Address address.
