Come and Join out Fight Against Children's Leukemia - You can Help by Donating

About Us

Who we are?

The Pins for Pauly Foundation ® is a nonprofit organizationunder section (501(c)(3)) of the IRS Code. It was founded in May of 2002 in memory of Paul Pavlou who succumbed to leukemia at age 15. Because Paul or Pauly liked to bowl, the foundation was named the Pins for Pauly Foundation. Now this non-for-profit foundation raises money to help families in their fight against childhood leukemia by holding bowl-a-thons throughout the country. We maintain our overhead expenses to an abosolute minimum. The Pins for Pauly Foundation has 100% volunteer working staff; therefore, your donation goes directly and entirely benefits the children fighting against leukemia.

What we do?

We help sick children whose parents don’t have the financial means to pay for the required care and treatment (check-ups/radiation/ chemotherapy/operation). The children in need may not have health insurance, and receiving private donations may be their only alternative for treatment and hope. We would like to help all children with leukemia, but in reality we are confined to giving as much as we receive in donations. As we grow we will be able to reach out and give to an increasing number.



Our goal is to improve the quality of life for children with leukemia by providing financial support who face the devastation and uncertainty of Leukemia.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide children who have leukemia and their families with the emotional, financial and educational support necessary to cope with their life-threatening illnesses.

Paul’s Story

Jan. 3, 1987 - May 18, 2002

Paul (Pauly) Pavlou was only 15 years old when he passed away from Leukemia.

Pauly's Sister, Elena, shares his story with us.

“Paul was a wonderful, vibrant, caring young boy who wanted to get as much done as he possibly could every day of his short life.”

It all started early 2001.


Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the Foundation has learned, through personal experience that a diagnosis of childhood leukemia gives rise to a thousand unforeseen pressures. The Pins for Pauly Foundation was created to ease these pressures they create so that the focus can be maintained on the primary task at hand, which is the Fight Against Children's Leukemia!
