Nashville Children’s Alliance has been fortunate to participate and partner with the Delek Fund for Hope for the past 7 years. Not only is it a huge return for us financially but it is one of the events that our staff and board fully support and look forward to attending every year. It has been a pleasure to work with the staff at the Delek Fund for Hope as they make it so easy for us to raise money through their Tournament of Hope. This truly is an opportunity of a lifetime for our agency and our hopes are to participate in a more impactful way every year.
Arkansas Children’s Hospital is incredibly grateful to have been a beneficiary of the Delek Fund for Hope. The generous support received by the Fund helped build the Center for Safe and Healthy Children on ACH’s campus, which will provide care and healing to children who are victims of abuse and neglect. The Delek Fund for Hope’s gift is helping ACH care for some of the most vulnerable children in our state and is furthering our mission to make children better today and healthier tomorrow.
