Who are we?
The Pins for Pauly Foundation® is a nonprofit organization under 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 bowlathons throughout the country. We maintain our overhead expenses to an absolute minimum.
The Pins for Pauly Foundation has 100% volunteer working staff; therefore, your donation in its entirety goes directly to children fighting against leukemia.
What do 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.
