All who participated in our online membership inquiry form and our therapeutic recreation program interest questioniere will have a head start on our no fee programming. To cut costs this year, Fun For Cure, Inc is currently combining our staff,membership, and programming with our resource and associate database, utilizing our contributions to the full extent. We are still trying not to include any fees with the activities that require funding in excess of our reserve. We are eliminating any programs that are not fully attended and we are adding documentation to every member's progress in order to reach out to other organizations that may see potential in what our mission will accomplish! In short, we are looking forward to achieving our purpose and spreading the word with more efficiency and we hope to acquire more donations and funding so that our mission may grow.... all at no cost for our members!

A word from our Founder, Florence .....
" A great week it's been working alongside Yvonne and the staff here at CPK! Our volunteers, Kyra and Claudia, were also amazing to work with! I am so grateful to be able to offer our free services to all the families I had the opportunity to meet and chat with! And again, thank you Jessica Sterner for all your hard work in acquiring our Sponsors and community donations! We could not have done it without you all!"
Our history is short and sweet! We've been incorporated since 2009, and our membership has always been free, including refreshments for our programs. We've incorporated all facility, material, and hospitality contributions into our therapeutic recreation support programs, as well as our special events and fundraisers. Through trial and error, we have concluded that our experienced and dedicated volunteers, rather than paid employees, bring a special compassionate effort into our services that could not be matched! Our passive fundraising history has led to a greater need for more cost effective programing so that we may continue our FREE membership and services! But we wouldn't have it any other way! It is not our policy to aggressively solicit funds! We are sure that our mission will pay for itself by remaining efficient, effective, and purposeful! When there's a will, there's a way.... and our journey is our goal!
We even have our bi-annual newsletters available to view from past years for historical purposes! Also view our website from years past right here.... Enjoy!
Thank you to Carolyn Sparano of Real Living Real Estate in Scarsdale for keeping Fun For Cure, Inc. on the forefront of her weekly newsletter.

She has been an associate of Fun For Cure, Inc. since 2010 and we hope to continue our business and personal relationships!
