The majority of the funds raised go to salaries for individuals/social workers who do not leave the office. Christmas gifts are a huge issue they like to boast that they provide however individuals that have the means to purchase gifts get the same amount that someone who doesn't have any. Also special need and emergency funds are extremely limited. Individuals who fundraiser qualify for bonuses while social workers do not get any. I also can't get a real concrete answer on how many patients they actually serve

This organization goes above and beyond for their patient families! The social workers work tirelessly and no patient is ever turned away! 82 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to the foundations mission !

I have been extremely involved in the giving community for many years and have been a follower of CLF of Michigan - through attending various fundraising events and even volunteering. I have gained tremendous insight to this statewide organization and understand the Foundation currently serves over 4,500 families statewide, which is an extraordinary accomplishment. Transparency can always be an opportunity for development with charity foundations, and I hope to see CLF take these reviews into consideration. Overall, I highly recommend attending some fundraising events and watch for this Foundation to continuously grow

This organization has been so helpful to our community. I am honored and thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful cause. A full .82 of every dollar raised is put directly into programs helping children adults afflicted by leukemia, lymphoma and other blood disorders. Through disease and treatment education, case management, emotional support and financial aid, more than 4,300 people will receive services this year alone.
