As everyone knows, a charity relies heavily on donations since grants and private funding are becoming harder and harder to obtain. We are asking each and every one of you to join forces with us and help us raise money to support our mission. Today as I gathered up all the applications we have received since June, I was overwhelmed. My heart may have sunk in my chest with the realization of how hard we at KossFF work and yet we can only fulfill 1-2 of these applications each month. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We have so many fun events coming up this fall and winter. Join us for one! If you can’t, we have an easy monthly donation option on our donations page. $10 per month could fund one application per year. It’s that easy. Please consider donating and blessing others with your gift.
Please read the letter below to learn how we can make an impact on our applicant’s lives.
Dear Koss Family Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors, Donors and staff,
Words can never express my gratitude for your generous donation. I am thankful that I was given your consideration, as the money enabled me to keep my home. My daughter (Sydney) and I have lived here for 15 years, since she was two years old. Your foundation’s check went immediately toward a partial payment on my mortgage. I had been behind on payments since January because I have been unable to work since October 5th, 2018. Soon after, I was diagnosed with stage three high grade ovarian cancer. I unknowingly had no short-term disability through my employer. On May 8th I will received my first monthly SSDI benefit payment and was able to pay my mortgage payment on my own. If it wasn't for the Koss Family Foundation and its members, I would have had to come up with over $4,000.00 in June, when the mortgage forbearance (written by the bank due to illness) expired. Foreclosure would have most certainly been the next step. Thank you a million times for your consideration and generosity. This act of kindness will not be forgotten in my or my daughter Sydney’s lifetime.
Cheryl A. Feest
