ELLE Foundation at a Crossroads 

Each year awareness of the ELLE Foundation grows within the Pediatric Oncology Community and more and more wish applications are being submitted…each carrying the heartbreaking journey of a child battling a recurrence of cancer for the second and sometimes third time. With its one wish per child policy, Make-A-Wish even refers former wish children to the ELLE Foundation.

Up until now the ELLE Foundation has been able to run off of the support and generosity of family, friends and our community, but we are now at a crossroads and we must start to form partnerships with businesses that want to join ELLE’s Family and help create memories of joy that ELLE’s Kids will treasure in their hearts forever.

Since its inception in 2010 the ELLE Foundation has been successful in never having to deny a child a wish because of the lack of funds but with wish applications out-numbering supporting donations this is becoming more and more difficult.        Please help us continue Lauren’s legacy through partnership with the ELLE Foundation.

Our Mission

Join Us

One ELLE of a Foundation

The ELLE Foundation is the only wish granting organization whose primary mission is to grant wishes for children with a recurrence of cancer. Granting final second wishes requires an extraordinary financial commitment, but our Lauren's passion inspires us every day, and our dedication to giving these deserving children a chance to forget, to laugh and to find their 

inner spirit is unwavering.

We are proud to say that we are an all volunteer run 501(c)(3) foundation and 93% of every dollar raised goes directly to granting wishes. Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors we have granted over 30 wishes just in the past 6 years.
