Clute's Life Foundation
The Clute Barrow Nelson Life Foundation has been established as a tax deductible, 501(C)(3) charitable organization to help children with cancer and their families. During Clute's illness, many family members, friends, businesses, churches, and caring individuals donated funds to help with the expenses of Clute's treatments. After Clute died, his family made the decision to use the funds that remained to continue the good works that were so generously bestowed upon them. Donations are solicited through newsletters, annual fundraisers, and this website.
Requests for financial assistance are received from hospital personnel and social workers with medical centers in the state of Georgia on behalf of the families in need. Funds are disbursed after requests are reviewed by the Foundation's Board of Directors. Below is an excerpt from a letter sent by someone who sees firsthand the benefits of the CBNLF:
Just want to let you know I went to Clute's website today to remind myself again of the beautiful little boy whose life and legacy is the reason so many children are helped every day. ....... This is a foundation that helps our patients at least once a week. Thank you for all that you do. Knowing that we have the Clute Barrow Nelson Life Foundation to turn to when all else fails is such a blessing.
