Charity as defined in the dictionary as: “Generous actions to aid those in need”.

My description of charity is, "The highest, noblest, strongest kind of LOVE. The kind of LOVE that changes people’s minds, hearts, and circumstances".

The kind of LOVE that provides HOPE where there once was none.  HOPE for HEALING.

With that HOPE OF HEALING, I would like to officially announce the change in the name of the “Colleen Giblin Foundation”.

We will now be known as the “Hope for Children Research Foundation”. We will continue to support the Colleen Giblin Research Laboratories at Columbia University Medical Center as we have for the past 30 years.

The name change became necessary in our rebranding and reaching out to a broader national audience, creating a larger donor base with corporations and private foundations. 

We are in a position, that to simply let people know what our goal and purpose is, solely by stating our name, “HOPE FOR CHILDREN RESEARCH FOUNDATION”.  We will continue with your help to make the world, our communities, and our future brighter and full of HOPE by healing our children.
