Quote - Jemar's dad

“To be honest, you and your organization have made it possible for our son’s recovery just as much as the doctors, nurses and the hospital.  Just want to say thank you very much and that it’s because of your heart why my son’s heart still beats.” 

—Jemar's dad

Become A Monthly Donor

By contributing a predetermined amount each month, you provide a reliable source of funding that enables us to give the vital, practical and comprehensive support that families caring for child battling a life-threatening illness so desperately need.

A dad told us, "I honestly can't imagine how we would have gotten through this alone, without Friends of Karen."

Your donation will be deducted from your credit card each month, and you will receive an e-mail notification when your contribution is debited from your credit card.

A mom told us, "Our son's journey was a difficult one, and Friends of Karen was there for us throughout the entire way. My husband and I will forever be grateful to them and all the people who generously donate to the organization which helped us, and will continue to help so many families like ours.

To become a monthly donor, click the purple Donate button and on the "Recurring Frequency" menu select "Monthly." Or contact Lisa Dashman at 914-617-4042. (You may discontinue your monthly sponsorship at any time.)

Workplace Giving/Matching Gift

A workplace giving campaign is an employer sponsored program that provides a simple contribution option for employees to make a difference in their chosen charity.

For employees this is a win-win situation since these programs offer the convenience of automatic payroll deductions without losing the tax benefits of charitable giving, as well as the strong emotional component of helping others in need. Some businesses match their employee’s contributions to certain charities that meet company guidelines (i.e., educational organizations, hospitals, etc.). Matching Gifts can double the impact of your personal donation and enable Friends of Karen to help as many children and families as possible.

Check with your Human Resources Department about your company’s workplace giving and matching gifts program. If your workplace giving program does not include Friends of Karen, please contact Regional Director Nancy Mariano or 631-473-1768 ext. 304.
