About The Jillian Fund
The Jillian Fund was founded in July 2013 by a group of inspired and caring individuals who set forth to fulfill a simple wish: to help families in need. The inspiration comes directly from Jillian, who leading by example, reached out and gave strength and encouragement to young children and teenagers in need. As of May 2019, the fund has raised $1,729,466 and helped 162 families.
The main objective of the fund is to provide financial support to families with children who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses and require critical care. There are many financial burdens placed upon families in these situations, including medical bills, travel costs for treatments and time away from work. Our goal is to allow family members the opportunity to be by their child's side and focus on their needs, and our financial support helps to make this possible.
Please take a moment to check out The Jillian Fund's website (www.thejillianfund.org) particularly to watch the short video by Jillian's father George and to read the section entitled "Who We Help" for an update on some of the families and children assisted thus far. The Jillian Fund's Board members are dedicated to the fulfillment of the Fund's mission, embody the spirit of community, and bring experience, expertise and energy to their respective roles.
