I have donated to Debbie's Fund for past 10 years. They have been an important factor in the survival of several smaller groups in Delaware. They are local and open to discuss their work with donors.
I am pleased to support this nonprofit organization both with financial donations and as an unpaid advisor to the Board of Directors when they did their strategic planning and revised their operational documentation. I know that this charity started out of a desire to honor the memory of Debbie Sipple and her love for animals, but Debbie's Fund has worked hard to establish the structure and integrity required for lasting strength and growth. Debbie's Fund fulfills a unique role in building bridges among animal support donors and clients. They manage their funds well and are an all-volunteer organization. And they need more volunteers!!!
We started Debra L. Sipple Memorial Inc. in 2004 following Debbie's death. We currently support 7 local groups with grants including the Kent County SPCA (Delaware). Our philosophy is to raise money in ways that do not compete directly with the groups we help. We have the PAR FOR PETS GOLF OUTING and the WHEELS AND WINE CAR SHOW among other fund raisers each year. Long term we hope to develop an endowment that will provide an income to be used for a variety of animal related causes. Our greatest need, besides funding, is to expand the number of volunteers and event managers. Website: www.debbiesfund.com
