Go4theGoal has been quickly responsive and supportive to many families that I have worked with. They have been flexible and accommodating to individual needs, whether they are practical or emotional supports - they just seem to want to meet a need and help a child and family. Whether it is assistance with a hotel bill or helping a student pay a tuition bill, Go4theGoal has been a wonderfully collaborative foundation to work with. They are a go-to for families and I am grateful that they do the work that they do!
As the social worker for a children's hospital, I love Go4TheGoal! They offer our families who are already emotionally overwhelmed by what's going on with their kids a resource - bill help - when it's needed most. Many of my families have had to quit a job (or got fired) because they were at the hospital with their sick child. They're worried with how am I going to pay the rent so my son or daughter has a home to return to. G4TG alleviates that concern in that moment so they can focus on their child's illness and helping them get better! I specifically like how fast the turn-around response is (24 hours or less usually). Again, it eases a parent's weight immediately! Thanks for all you do for my patients at our hospital in Charleston, SC! - Tiombe Plair, LMSW
I'm an Oncology Social Worker at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland who collaborates with Go4thegoal often. The staff are phenomenal! They have large hearts and do great work to help so many families that are struck by cancer. They are very responsive and expeditiously help me in my role to problem solve issues that arise for my families. I am grateful that Go4thegoal does the work that they do and look forward to continue our wonderful working relationship. I give a big THANK YOU!
Go4thegoal has helped so many of my families in their times of need. I've been so impressed, not only with the generosity of this organization, but with their attentiveness to providing assistance in a timely manner. I've seen this organization go above and beyond to pay a family's electric bill by making the payment online instead of mailing a check, just so the payment wouldn't be late. I enjoy working with G4TG tremendously and will continue to rely on them to provide much needed help to families of children with cancer.
You all are wonderful in what you do, and not only wonderful but quick in your response, either for what you can do as well as what you are unable to do. I know the families you have assisted us are very pleased with Go4theGoal! Carolyn K. Williams, MSW Oncology Social Worker, CHKD, Norfolk, VA
I found out through the internet that a local teen who plays basketball had been diagnosed with Leukemia. I seached the internet and found go4thegoal. I loved the idea of selling showlaces to our towns children and sports team. It seemed to me like an easy thing to sell and something that the kids could use. Beth at Go4thegoal was so helpful and kind on the phone. I picked up laces the same day I made my first phone call to her. I had everything I needed to get started. That night in a few hours I sold 20 laces to a few people at a basketball game. People were so generous and so supportive and loved the laces and the bracelets. I was able to take pictures and post them on media sites so that our local teen that was battling leukemia could see that we were there for him and supporting him. It just took one phone call to get the ball rolling it couldn't have been any easier.
Review from Guidestar
I am a social worker at a children's hospital. Go 4 the Goal has been an amazing organization that has assisted many of our families, specifically during emergent situations. All of their staff are professional, passionate, and responsive to the needs of our families. I can not think of a better run, more dedicated organization than G4G. Thank you for all that you do to serve pediatric cancer patients and their families!
We are grateful to gof4thegoal for providing beach access to patients who are experiencing end of life care and wish to be with their families in a relaxed setting. Go4thegoal presents unique opportunities for families to bond when their children when receiving palliative care and all other avenues have been exhausted to provide respite care for these families. Thank you for this special service for the families.

This organization is awesome!!! Not only do they provide our families with resources and support during their time of need, but through their Holiday program they also allowed our clinic staff the opportunity to work together and have positive experiences with our patients. Something that we will never forget and are so grateful for.
Go4theGoal is an amazing organization that has provided the patients in our clinic with an extensive collection of electronic equipemtn via their Holiday Giving Program. They also provide emergency financial assistance to our patient's families when they need it the most. They are very easy to work with andy they have a very thoughtful and caring staff.
Go4thegoal is an amazing organiztion, who partners with us on many occasions to help our patients and their families. Whenever we have a need, Go4thegoal is eager to help us, whether it is adopting a family for the holidays, sending a patient to a Broadway show, or doing a fabulous makeover for our "Teen Lounge". The staff and founders of Go4thegoal are always looking for new incredible ideas to bring to us for our patients. The Kart 4 Kids is so well received by our families, they are always looking for that sweet treat, and encouraging words fron the G4theG volunteers. We love you Go4thegoal! - Sue Administrative Director Tomorrows Children's Fund
