We do this by soliciting donations to enable us to make direct financial grants, through our Grants Assistance Program, to support Sierra Madre activities, events, organizations, and programs. The SMCF also enables other Sierra Madre community groups to collect funds to support a specific purpose benefitting the Sierra Madre community in part or at large, through its Special Project Agreements Program.

Cancer Support Community
Greater San Gabriel Valley

September 19, 2023

The Community foundation was pleased to grant $2,000 to the new Cancer Support Community - Greater San Gabriel Valley.  The grant will be used for CSCSGV to put on free Wednesday Family Night that support cancer patients, their caregiver(s),/loved ones, and their children or grandchildren.    Families will enjoy a free dinner together and then go to one of three support groups:  the first for patients, the second for their caregivers, and the third for their kids. In the groups, participants will share their journey with their peers in a safe and confidential space, encouraging each other, crying and laughing, relieving stress, and learning from each other and the facilitator about resources, best practices and communication skills as it relates to their cancer experience

 

"As your new neighbor, Cancer Support Community is thrilled by the Sierra Madre Community Foundation's generous support for our in-person Wednesday Family Night.  Cancer patients, their caregivers/loved ones, and their children enjoy a meal together and then join their respective support group—one for patients, another for caregivers, and the third for kids.  Thank you, SMCF, for assuring families don't face cancer alone!!"
