Proudly Announcing the SU4C Spinnaker Fund
Spinnaker: noun, Nautical.
1. a large, usually triangular sail carried by a yacht as a headsail when running before the wind or when the wind is abaft the beam.
By definition, the spinnaker is a sail used when sailing with the wind behind your back. We, at Sails Up 4 Cancer, are behind you acting as that wind. We’ve got your back!
We have the Spinnaker Fund to encourage and support those battling cancer and undergoing expensive treatments. When applying for funds from the Spinnaker Fund, think of that money as the breeze behind you – propelling you forward in your fight against cancer. As expenses grow and income is lost we wish to alleviate the stress associated with these financial hardships. During your battle with cancer, the last thing you need is more stress.
All of us have been touched by cancer; we know those battling need help.
We can’t promise to solve all of your financial woes; but we can promise that we will look hard and compassionately at your request and do what we can to help. We are a small organization with limited funds. All of our Board members have been touched by cancer. Some more intimately than others, so we’re all too familiar with your plight. Trust that we are here to help and support you.
Spinnaker Fund Eligibility: Funds are granted to individuals who submit a letter along with the application explaining the reason for the request. The SU4C Board reviews requests and a determination is made based upon patient needs and availability of funds. Applicants must be a resident of the SE Connecticut area and be undergoing cancer treatment. All information is strictly confidential.
Sincerely, Bob Davis SU4C CEO & Founder
