Nonprofit Recipient: Kari's Heart Foundation

Kari's Heart Foundation has been selected at random from giving circle member nominations as the recipient of our 17th Big Give! The nonprofit's goal is simple: Help families of hospitalized children.

They are a faith based organization set up to provide a wide range of personal, financial, and social resources to help people who are currently experiencing a healthcare crisis. Our donations will be used to support children and their families in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

Jennifer Schoondyke (giving circle member) is the Founder and Director of Outreach of the nonprofit. She says, "Kari's Heart Foundation (KHF) has helped over 1,700 local families of hospitalized children in our area since it was founded in 2008. KHF strives to meet the needs of these families during some of the most difficult times of their lives.

Most frequently aid is given to help with transportation and meal expenses when families from this area have to travel for their children's care. However, KHF helps with many other needs such as rent, mortgage, hotel expenses, utility bills, medical supplies, funeral expenses and more."


Most women give $100-200 for each Big Give, but you can donate any amount. This is our last event of the year. Donations are matched 50% by the Schulze Family Foundation as long as the nonprofit meets their criteria, which we expect they will. 

Option A: Donate online. This link will allow you to donate via PayPal or with a credit card or debit card. Please add a comment to your donation: "Big Give".
