 Our Mission

Frankie's World Foundation provides for the health and well-being of children with medical needs by establishing high-quality care centers, advocating for caregivers, and creating innovative programs. We encourage and support each child to achieve his or her individual potential - physically, socially and intellectually.

Ways you can make a difference!

MONETARY DONATIONS

Your gift of any size will help us provide specialized equipment and classroom supplies for medically fragile children in Philadelphia. Your gift will also allow us to accept children quickly while their health insurance arrangements are still being finalized. Frankie’s World Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and your donation is fully tax-deductible. Begin by clicking the DONATE button . Although our system is powered by Paypal, you don’t need a Paypal account to use it – just enter your credit card details. Or if you prefer to donate by check, please make it payable to:

Frankie’s World Foundation,  
1011 Poplar Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123.

AMAZON SMILE

If you love shopping online at Amazon, you’ll love Amazon Smile even more! The shopping is exactly the same (same products, same prices) except Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to Frankie’s World Foundation. If you bookmark your favorite sites, replace amazon.com with smile.amazon.com.
