“Enhancing the Experience of the Shriners Child and Family”

Working together we will make a DIFFERENCE

A message from our Chairman:

I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding support and services that the Q Foundation for Kids® performs for the Shriners’ Children. The Q Foundation provides services and support to Shriner’s children and their family while they are in the hospital due to their families being unable to financially afford the necessities of life while receiving the care the child desperately needs. Shriner’s Hospital are known worldwide for the love and care that they provide to each-and-every child that comes through their hospital doors. However, without the Q Foundation for Kids®, their families would not have housing, food, transportation and other sundry items they require to receive the services of Shriner’s Hospitals. The Q Foundation and their donors provide the children and their families with a benefit they cannot afford that will forever be remembered and cherished.

Thank you, Q Foundation for Kids® for changing the world one child at a time. God Bless you!

Gary Bergenske,
Chairman, Q Foundation for Kids®
