The Northern Lights Foundation provides funds to families of children with life-threatening illnesses. The money can be used to help with medical costs, travel costs, or as needed by the family. Money that is raised locally, stays local. The children must be referred to the Foundation and determined medically eligible by their physician. The Northern Lights Foundation respects the privacy of the children and families we serve. Our referrals are kept strictly confidential. The Northern Lights Foundation finances its work through individual contributions, corporate donations, foundation grants, planned gifts, special events, and other donations.
