The Spencer Kult Memorial Family Assistance Fund was created in August 2002 to honor the memory of Spencer Kult. In his honor, we provide financial aid to families in need by paying utility bills, travel expenses, lodging, and sadly, sometimes even funeral expenses.
Please help us continue our mission of assisting families who are affected by Congenital Heart Defects during far from home or extended hospital stays by donating to Spencer's Fund!
The need has never been greater, and your support is critical to our ongoing efforts to help families and adults with CHD in crisis.
Spencer's Fund is awesome! They stepped in and assisted our families during tough financial times due to lengthy hospital stays--our families are forever grateful!!

Spencer's fund helped me pay my rent at a time when I didn't know how I would make it: living in the hospital with my son in Utah, not working (FMLA) and having an apartment and all my belongings in Texas. Thank you for helping me and my family get through
this difficult time.
Stephano has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome with Pulmonary Hypertension and a GI feeding tube. He spent almost the first 10 months of his life between Miami, Orlando, Pensacola and Panama city hospitals.
As you can imagine, traveling from one hospital to another put a huge strain on our budget. A social worker from the Pensacola hospital told us about Spencer's Fund, and I contacted you to ask for help. Spencer's Fund paid our electricity bill when our service was about to be disconnected. Stephano was coming home that week with medical equipment in need of power. Knowing that there was help for us was so important! Thank-you for being there when no one else was.
