Financial Assistance Grants & Emergency Financial Assistance
CJ’s Thumbs Up Foundation has distributed over 200 $500 gifts (over $100,000) to families in need since 2010. These financial assistance grants could be used for any necessary expenses on the part of the family.
While we have ended the Financial Assistance Grant program, we continue to support families who are patients at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU and UVA Children's Hospital through direct payment of specific expenses.
If you know of a family of a child with a chronic, life-threatening illness who may need specific assistance, you can contact us and we may be able to help with a specific bill or need. This can include medical bills, utility bills or rent/mortgage needs, funeral expenses, etc.
