Mission: We are here to support families of cancer victims continue with the day to day activities. From keeping bills paid to providing for the next doctor's appointment, we are here to help.
Programs: The someday foundation was created by two high school friends who experienced firsthand the loss of family members to cancer. Realizing that while individuals are facing many challenges from a recent diagnosis, life still goes on. Doctor appointments take place, therapy & treatments are on-going, all taking time and resources. Along with that, bills still need to be paid, house payments need to be made, and the list goes on. In short life keeps rolling along. The someday foundation strives to assist with the "everyday" things and relieve some of the pressures that come with that. Many times our recipients find themselves unable to work, or are reduced to limited work schedules. That has a huge impact on their financial situation. Many find, like we did, that there are not a lot of resources to help, and if available, there is a lot of red tape or stipulations that come along with receiving help. The someday foundation cuts out the red tape by having a simple application completed and approved by our board of directors. We raise our funds through golf outings and special events in wisconsin and iowa. We hope to expand beyond these events, and focus on grant awards to continue to support the financial struggles in our community. Our recipients find themselves relieved because when we award funds, there are no strings attached. We expect nothing in return. All we ask is that when you are in a position to give back to your community, you rise to the occasion. Recipients are free to use the funds as their situations dictate. The pink ribbon open is an annual golf fundraiser raising money for local nonprofit groups that help women coping with cancer.
This foundation was created after two friends lost family members to cancer. The group has events multiple times yearly. All proceeds are donated directly to people who are struck with catastrophic life altering events such as cancer. The website www.somedayfoundation has an on-line application for people who request assistance. It is a 501 3(c) non-profit group. All board members are volunteers (unpaid).Over the past 12 yeas we have given away over $110,000 to people who have requested assistance. The biggest event is the Annual Swing for a Cure golf event held in Peosta, IA. At that event there is a focus family or person who will receive a portion of the proceeds from that event. The foundation has assisted people in the Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois areas. We have teamed up with the University of Wisconsin Hospital Oncology Social Service Department. They help people who have run out of financial support apply for funding from this organization. This group is committed to helping others in their time of need financially with out a lot of red tape.
