Karen and Charles Phillips Charitable Helps Single Mother Through Nursing School

News on 20 Apr , 2015

Gracelyn Littlejohn is a single mother of two and attempting to complete her master’s degree in nursing with a goal of teaching.   Her own challenges with Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer curtailed her previous normal nursing employment so teaching proved a more viable path.  However the challenges of medical bills and household expenses as a single mother were over whelming.

Phillips Charitable Organization provided a grant to allow Ms. Littlejohn to complete her education and pursue a teaching career.

Karen and Charles Phillips Charitable Organization is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit foundation providing financial help for single parents, students interested in engineering, and wounded veterans. 100% of the foundation’s assets are disbursed directly to grantees. Our charter: urgent cases where a timely bootstrap grant can initiate meaningful change toward a planned recovery.
