What We Do

A 100% volunteer, Westchester-based non-profit organization, The Danny Fund provides financial, emotional, and advocacy support for the families of children who reside within a 30-mile radius of Pelham, NY and are suffering from a catastrophic illness or injury. What separates The Danny Fund from many other similar organizations is that other organizations typically have significant restrictions on the amount of money they spend and what they spend it on. This enables them to provide some help to a large number of needy kids, but often only on a one-time basis. The Danny Fund adopts a family for the long haul and provides ongoing support as it is needed, for as long as it’s needed.

The Danny Fund has informal relationships with a number of agencies such as Cancer Care, Friends of Karen, American Cancer Society and The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Pediatric Department of Social Services.
