To provide financial resources to organizations that support children's healthcare needs, with an emphasis on cancer.
The Cullen Children's Foundation, or Cully's Kids, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial resources to organizations that support children’s healthcare needs founded by Matt & Bridget Cullen in 2003.
Each summer, a Celebrity Weekend is held in the Fargo-Moorhead area which includes a Celebrity Golf Tournament, Silent Auction & Social, and Kid's Picnic.
This year, the Cully's Kids Celebrity Weekend made over $430,000, surpassing this year’s goal and setting a new record. Over the last seven years, the Cullen Children’s Foundation has raised more than $2.3 million to benefit Cully’s Kids and has created an endowment fund of more than $1 million to ensure that the Foundation can continue to grant money into the future.
The kids who benefit – affectionately named Cully’s Kids – live with special care needs due to affects of cancer or other disease. Grants are awarded by the Cullen Children’s Foundation to local Fargo-Moorhead organizations that support these children’s health needs while positively improving their quality of life and have totaled more than $700,000 through 2010.
