Family Support Legacy Funds

The Family Support Legacy Fund is used to help individuals and families living with a disability cope with an unexpected emergency, acquire needed assistive technology and adaptive equipment, or help people live more independently. When a family comes to Blossom Philadelphia in need of assistance, Blossom Philadelphia’s Community Social Services Department will first research the availability of other resources such as religious, fraternal, and governmental support systems. When other avenues of support are unavailable or insufficient, the Blossom Philadelphia Family Support Fund is there so that every individual or family in need of assistance has a place to turn to for help. The Fund has been used to help families purchase stair glides for their home, make a vehicle accessible, and purchase adapted computer equipment.

The Legacy Fund is comprised of individual donor-named funds that have been formed to honor and/or memorialize a loved one or special person. By investing the principle of all individual funds, income is generated and made available through Blossom Philadelphia’s Community Social Services Department. With the first one created in 1993, today there are 33 individual funds generating revenue used to assist families in the region.

Assistance may be in the form of a grant or loan depending upon the circumstances.

With the Family Support Legacy Fund you are assured that your gift directly touches the lives of families challenged by disabilities. People interested in establishing a tribute or memorial fund should contact
Blossom Philadelphia’s Executive Office at 215.242.7601 or pcyzewski@blossomphila.org .
