The Aubrey Rose Foundation in Cincinnati, OH helps families with children who have a life-threatening medical condition. The organization was founded in memory of Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp, who as an infant was diagnosed with a severe cardiac condition.

The foundation seeks to help families whose child has a serious illness such as organ failure, cancer or disease by providing emotional and financial support. Grants are available that specifically pay for the child’s medical care, thus lessening the financial strain on the family during a difficult time.

Grants are awarded on a quarterly basis. The Board of Trustees meet in March, June, September and December and applicants are notified of the grant status within 60 days after the meeting.

    I have a question on the taxability of funds raised from a benefit/fundraiser. My niece’s son has to have open heart surgery next summer. He is 8 years old. She is a single Mom of 2 children. We would like to organize a fund raiser or benefit event to raise money to assist her with expenses that won’t be covered by insurance, and to assist her while she is off of work on un-paid FMLA leave.

    Can you tell me if these monies raised would be considered taxable income to my Niece??
