One hundred percent of your donations are helping students with college scholarships, lung transplant grants and financial assistance for medical needs - that's more than $200,000 over the past several years. We also mentor in the CF community and have recently launched a support group.
The Bonnell Foundation volunteers work tirelessly to raise monies to support families living with CF. Having raised thousands of dollars through key events to date the Bonnell Foundation has been able to provide medical grants, scholarships, and provide funds for CF research.
I appreciate the mission of this foundation, and do not want to disparage the mission, but I had a very negative interaction with the founder of the foundation.

We are working to make a difference in the CF community. We are not aware of anyone having had a bad experience with our Foundation. Please email us at: email@example.com so that we might talk with you directly. We want to make sure nothing but positive vibes come from our Foundation. I am the Founder of the Bonnell Foundation and take this seriously. I have no idea who jpstevens is, having looked back to our contacts and sponsors. Look forward to hearing from you personally.

I am a pulmonary social worker at Ft Sam Houston who serves military families experiencing a pulmonary related disease such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF). At times, there are families who need financial assistance and the Bonnell Foundation was there to provide that support for a family needing assistance with unexpected day care expenses due the military member having to train across the country for a few months and his son with CF needing specialized day care to continue. This specific assistance was a part of the Bonnell Foundation's Medical Support Program which is a new resource that is available to military families having to deal with CF. The Bonnell Foundation also has a CF Pen Pal Program which is an emotional support network for children and parents. Bonnell also has a CF Caregiver Appreciation Program designed to help military couples (both parents) by sending them cards of emotional support on a monthly basis. I highly recommend them and utilizing their incredible support system.
