Connecticut Sport Foundation Charity Profile
Founded in 1987, the Connecticut Sports Foundation (“CSF”) is a non-profit organization with a 501 (c)(3) designation.
To financially assist Connecticut cancer patients and their families and to fund cancer research.
Many cancer patients and families are suddenly confronted with insurmountable bills at a time when focusing on healing is critical to their recovery. CSF is able to quickly and compassionately ease their burden with direct financial assistance. CSF has found that even small gestures of support can be the jumpstart a patient needs to fight back against their illness.
CSF is a unique organization in Connecticut that provides funds to Connecticut cancer patients for rent/mortgage, utilities, transportation, medications and more. Patients are referred to CSF via a network of oncology social workers at Connecticut hospitals and cancer centers. Resources are provided with dignity and privacy, helping patients maintain self-respect while lessening the stress that may inhibit their recovery.
