Help FPS win a $75,000 grant from Chick-fil-A!

Posted Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Help us win $75,000 from Chick-fil-A Foundation!

This will be the largest grant we have ever received, but we can’t win without your vote AND advocacy. This funding will impact dozens of adult cancer patients, their caregivers and their children, giving them a chance to take a break from cancer through an FPS respite vacation and related emotional support. With 160 families expected to travel this year, we desperately need this funding to help us reach our annual goal!

In a moment of grant coincidence, (or perhaps divine intervention?), voting opens on September 1st, which is also the anniversary of our founder, Pete Bossow, Jr.’s passing. We know he is smiling down on us!

So, what’s the deal?

We need you to do two things:

  1. Vote for FPS on your Chick-fil-A One App (if you don’t already have it, it’s an easy and free download here. You can use your social media or email account to sign in – 1,2,3…go!) Voting opens on September 1 and ends on October 21! One vote per registered user.

  2. Tell your friends and family to do the same! Below are some messages you can copy and paste into email and/or social media posts to invite your network to vote for FPS. You can also DOWNLOAD A FLYER to post in your place of business, school, church or local grocery store! Click here: Chick fil A flyer

How Does Your Vote Make an Impact?

For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation gives adult cancer patients, their caregivers and their children a chance to take a break from cancer through cost-free, care-free respite vacations and related emotional support. We address the emotional needs of hundreds of patients, caregivers and kids each year. This year, we hope to provide 160 respite vacations, with approximately 640 people expected to travel and hundreds more served with referrals, resources and emotional support!
