United Way

The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund is not a United Way agency, but participates in the United Way’s donor option program (for United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania, use donor option number 03972). We also participate in the Combined Federal Campaign for Southeastern Pennsylvania and Lehigh Valley Areas, South Jersey, and Delaware (use campaign number 66587).

We would be happy to speak on behalf of the United Way at your workplace during your United Way campaign. We will speak to a group of any size, anywhere in the greater Philadelphia area, including New Jersey and Delaware. To make arrangements, please contact your local United Way and request that someone from the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund speak at your campaign.

Child
Social worker, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
We wanted to write to thank you for your unyielding support to the patients in the Nephrology Division and their families this past year. Your Fund has helped numerous families we work with to cover household expenses that are difficult to manage when one's child is unexpectedly hospitalized, chronically ill, on dialysis, or receiving a kidney transplant. The families always tell us how much this generous and practical support makes a difference to them.From the social work perspective, the unique quality of your program is the "user friendly," prompt and efficient application process, and the lack of waiting periods, long application forms, and eligibility requirements that other funds require. In other words, the Dolan Fund "makes it happen"! This is what makes a difference to a family in need with a sick child.Thank you for everything, Peggy, to you and your staff.
