Impact is a word often associated with philanthropic generosity: What will my donation do for an organization? Who will benefit from my support? How will I know it made a difference?
Every program and grant created by the Gabrielle Dinsmore Heart & Hope Fund is designed with direct impact in mind. From the 200 children who have attended Gabrielle’s Heart Camp, to the numerous families who have received financial support grants, to the 120 families assisted by a new social worker, to the families who attend pediatric feeding groups, hundreds of families have benefitted personally from the Gabrielle Dinsmore Heart & Hope Fund – from your generous donations.
Thousands of friends, philanthropic individuals, and Gabrielle Dinsmore Heart & Hope Fund families have come together to support the Fund’s mission and goals, through generous donations and volunteer time. For many, their initial support was in loving memory of Gabrielle Dinsmore, who lost her heart battle just shy of her third birthday. But as the Fund, the camp, and programs have grown, they have become proud supporters of this community of friends and physicians who want to support these families and children living with the impact of congenital heart defects, heart disease, and severe eating issues.
Additionally, the Gabrielle Dinsmore Heart & Hope Fund has received support from the most prominent corporate and independent business leaders throughout Rhode Island, including Navigant Credit Union, ChemArt, CVSHealth, who appreciate the impact the Gabrielle Dinsmore Heart & Hope Fund has on the community in which its company, employees, and customers work and live.
We invite you to learn more about our Heart and Feeding Families, our camp and education programs, our family and hospital grant recipients. And to join our community with your support. Your generosity will allow the Gabrielle Dinsmore Heart & Hope Fund to help these children grow and thrive, to support each family who receives a new diagnosis and to profoundly impact this growing community for the future.
Navigant Credit Union is a strategic partner of the Fund and is an integral part of the Fund’s success. The Fund is grateful to be the recipient of five annual grants from Navigant Credit Union.
