David R. Sellers Foundation Funds AZ Cancer Foundation for Children
The David R. Sellers Foundation has announced a $60,000 gift to Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children (ACFC) through a triple-match campaign that has been in effect for the past two months. The David R. Sellers Foundation is the 501(c)3 arm of LGE Design Build, one of the Valley’s preeminent design and construction companies. LGE and the Foundation put a challenge out to company employees, subcontractors, partners, and clients, inviting them to contribute to ACFC and have their donation tripled through the LGE match program.
Scottsdale, Ariz.-based ACFC provides physical, social, and much-needed financial support directly to families who are managing the health and well-being of a loved one with pediatric cancer. ACFC programs include financial assistance, 4 Paws for Healing (K9 therapy), Sunshine Packs (books, small games, art supplies, etc.), Cancer Concierge (lodging and transportation assistance), and end of life support.
“ACFC is so thankful and proud to have the support of the David R. Sellers Foundation, LGE, and their partners. The support provided will impact the lives of hundreds of Arizona families who have a child with cancer,” said Chrisie Funari, founder and executive director of ACFC. “ACFC provides support to families in the form of financial assistance, K9 therapy and counseling, toys and meals, essential items, birthday gifts and respite programs such as art classes and unique experiences, etc. We truly focus on the entire family and provide ongoing support every step of the family’s journey.”
“We realized that there is an additional burden on those with cancer due to the COVID-19 virus,” said David R. Sellers Foundation Director Carrie Masters. “That’s why we decided it was so important to fund ACFC right now, especially with its focus on children.”
Founded in 2014, the David R. Sellers Foundation has funded over 56 organizations. During the COVID-19 crisis, it has funded numerous organizations which include Global Orphan Hope, UMOM, Phoenix Rescue Mission, Child Crisis Center, The Joy Bus, Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County, and Amanda Hope.
