Promise Circle brings together a group of dynamic, committed women, in an effort to improve the lives of pediatric cancer patients, while offering opportunities to its members to be actively engaged in the foundation’s mission.
The mission of Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation is to support children battling cancer by funding programs that improve patients’ quality of life, treatment programs that increase survivorship and pediatric medical research dedicated to finding a cure.
In addition, the Foundation provides support to the Jeff Gordon’s Children’s Hospital in Concord, NC, which serves children in the community by providing a high level of primary and specialty care, regardless of their ability to pay.
The Promise Circle is a dedicated volunteer group of women who work to maximize outcomes for patient support programs funded or administered by the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation. We work on behalf of the foundation as advocates for children with cancer and their families.
Our efforts are driven to meet two key goals:
1. To provide funding (goal of $200,00 by 2013) for critical patient support programs serving children with cancer
2. To establish community outreach programs that will further improve the lives of patients and their families (serve a minimum of 1,000 additional patients)
2011 was our first full year as an organization and we achieved several milestones. The Promise Circle established the executive leadership team, launched our social media presence, successfully piloted our first “friends asking friends” program, determined our two year business plan and created a solid foundation for us to build upon.
Now, in order to serve as many children as possible, we are welcoming new members that share the same passion we do - to make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer.
Our members commit to at least three years of financial support and to lending their skills, leadership and compassion to affecting positive change for these precious children.
Annual dues of $1100 per member are matched by the foundation and then pooled to ensure that the Promise Circle can have significant impact well beyond what any one member could do alone. Furthermore, each member votes on programs to fund – ensuring that they have a direct impact on how their contribution will be used. The results are remarkable! In the first year, the Promise Circle granted $65,000 to worthy programs throughout the United States.
