The Aubrey Rose Foundation is, and always has been, to help families that are caring for medically-fragile children suffering from life-threatening illnesses, while maintaining a focus on family unity. Thanks to our many volunteers and donors, the Aubrey Rose Foundation does many different things in order to lift the weight of life’s complexities. It’s especially touching at this time of the year to witness the positive impact you and your generosity are making.
Providing the help needed to maintain stability and consistency in the midst of a terrible situation is something so very important and positive for these children and their families, as we’re reminded in the note from a family recently helped.
To everyone at ARF – You are amazing! I am shaking and in tears. My husband and I began the day discussing when we will be forced to sell our house and leave our community because we don’t know how we will pay our next tax bill. Hours later, we have received your package, explaining your incredible generosity in paying our hospital bill. We will always pay this forward and look forward to the day we can become donors to help other families too. And thank you for the adorable soft stuffed animals (and for including our daughter!!).
Your thoughtfulness and generosity are so very much appreciated, and Aubrey lives on in these moments of gratitude and love.
With much love and gratitude,” Amy (Damien’s Mom)
We applaud young people who know the meaning of giving back & awards educational scholarships to 8th-grade students who are continuing their high school education at a private Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky or Southeast Indiana school.
The scholarships are based on a young person’s kindness and willingness to give back to our community & their compassionate heart.
Please encourage your 8th grader to apply today and share this opportunity with any young person in your family and/or community so we can recognize them for their good works.
Putting Your “Best Foot Forward”
ARF’s “Soles for Souls” Shoe Drive will help critically ill kids & those living in poverty around the world. We are in need of gently worn, used or new pairs of shoes and YOU can help!
De-Cluttering at the end of the year? Look through those closets and boxes and clean out while helping those in need! We’ll even pick up what you’d like to get rid of.
Know of a high school that’s looking to give back? The 2019 “Soles for Souls” Shoe Drive will be in high gear at local high schools soon – ask us how to get involved!
At year-end, we’re many times looking for ways we can help others now and in the new year. As the Aubrey Rose Foundation continues to help families and their needs continue to grow, our funding needs continue to grow as well. Here are some ways to help us help others.
YEAR-END TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS: Making a tax-deductible donation to the Aubrey Rose Foundation on or before December 31st allows those with the means to give to those in need while allocating the gift to this year’s tax return.
MATCHING GIFTS: Many companies offer a matching gift program that could double or even triple your gift to the Aubrey Rose Foundation. Contact your human resource department to find out if your company has such a program.
LONG-TERM TAX SAVINGS: Tax preparation time is also a good time to consider long-term tax savings. When you consult an attorney or investment professional regarding your wishes for the distribution of your assets in your will, consider a provision for the Aubrey Rose Foundation. Your planned gift in the form of an endowment will live on after you.

RAISE FUNDS AT WORK: Establish a special day or days, for employees to make a designated donation to The Aubrey Rose Foundation, in return for wearing blue jeans or a casual day.
PUBLIC AWARENESS: Public awareness leads to contributions. Contact and solicit opportunities to speak at local civic organizations, like Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis Clubs, or other civic groups. Aubrey Rose Foundation would be happy to provide speakers for your organization.
