When a client comes to CPS for support after a diagnosis it takes $2,500 to get them through their first year of treatment.
CPS is an independent non-profit which means we rely on donations to provide the support for Hancock county cancer patients and their families.
In February of this year, CPS was notified of a $60,000 reduction from our largest grant. Because of this reduction, we had to make some cuts to the agency. We reduced our office space at The Family Center, we did not fill an open position.
Unfortunately, we also had to reduce the amount of financial assistance and nutritional supplements we provide for our clients. The programming cuts were the most difficult for our agency. Our goal is to return our programs and services to their previous levels. To do that, we need to re-evaluate our funding streams.
Chili Cook-Off is our major fundraiser. This year we raised a little over $XX,XXX. Our goal is to increase that amount to $100,000 in 2021. This is where we need your help!
For Chili Cook-Off 2021 we are asking our teams to tray to raise at least $1,000.
Here are the details:
We understand that participating in this event has other expenses such as chili ingredients and booth decorating supplies. Chili Cook-Off is 20% of our annual budget and the fundraising that comes out of it is a huge portion of that percentage. We are so appreciative of your participation and are very thankful for all fundraising that comes out of our signature event!
Cancer Patient Services is the only local independent nonprofit agency that provides direct assistance to cancer patients. We couldn’t do the things we do without individuals like you and your team members!
