OUR PURPOSE: Financial assistance for educational tuition for End Stage Renal Dialysis patients who are awaiting kidney transplant.
OUR MISSION: To motivate and enable our beneficiaries to realize their educational advancement aspirations during the years of waiting for a donor organ.
OUR GOAL: To provide a solid foundation for our beneficiary to lead productive and prosperous post-transplant lives.
The genesis of the Dialysis Scholarship Fund (DSF) started with an inspiration of its founder, John M Turek, based on his own experience as a dialysis patient. After enduring several years of mind-numbing, seemingly endless treatments, during which he spent thousands of non-productive hours, he wondered how this time could be used more constructively. In other words: "What would it take to transform this useless "Downtime" into useful "Uptime".
With the proliferation of internet-based educational courses, came part of the solution. The rest came from the certification of the Dialysis Scholarship Fund as a non-profit, public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
As such, DSF can solilcit and accept public and private charitable donations to fund educational scholarships for qualified beneficiaries, who will use their dialysis treatment time to further their education.
Since the typical patient during this trying times does not have his own financial resources for educational advancement, a DSF educational assistance grant will have a significant impact on their life. Besides the enjoyment of learning and the satisfaction of one's educational goal attainment, the critical long-term benefit will be the prospect of a better financial future as a result of higher education.
Of course, none of these goals could be accomplished without your support and generosity. In the near future we will be sponsoring more charitable events to raise the funding necessary to finance as many scholarships as possible. Please note: 98% of ALL donations go directly to this worthwhile cause.
