About Our Foundation
The Shannon Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping to pay for medical care for children
whose families can't afford it. Formed in 1994 in memory of Shannon Fisher, who passed away as an infant,
The Shannon Foundation believes that no child or infant should suffer because his or her family cannot afford
to pay for medical care.
The 100% Charity
One of the most important aspects of The Shannon Foundation is that, unlike most charities, 100% of the donations it receives are allocated for charitable disbursement or, if requested by the donor, included in the foundation's endowment; no portion of its revenues are used for administrative or any other purposes.
Our Kids
Working through social workers at various hospitals across the country to identify kids in need, the foundation has paid for medicine, medical tests and procedures, equipment (such as wheelchairs, ventilators, etc.), hospital visits, surgery, medical co-pays, chemotherapy and physical therapy.
Some of Our Stories
The Shannon Foundation has received section 501(c)(3) status, so donations are tax deductible. Through the continued support of our donors, the Foundation has been able to help countless families and their children during difficult times. We'd love to share a few of the letters we have received from families that have received help from The Shannon Foundation.
