The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund advocates for families with seriously ill, physically and cognitively challenged, or severely injured children nationwide through information and education. We provide financial assistance for needs not covered by insurance to families whose children are living in or cared for in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Delaware. Families in crisis are referred to us by an extensive network of social workers, case managers, physical therapists, and other healthcare professionals in hospitals, medical facilities, social service agencies, and treatment centers. We have assisted more than 28,000 families since our founding in 1976. Our programs help strengthen families, improve their quality of life, and promote self-sufficiency.

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund provides financial assistance to patients with life-threatening, chronic or rare diseases.
Impact Statement
$350 provides $320 in financial assistance to a patient.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of financial assistance to patients programs are based on income generated relative to cost. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they increase income for a recipient by more than $1.50 for every $1 spent and a score of 75 if income increases by more than $0.85 for every $1 spent. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund.
Data Source
Output data collected during the program. Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund publicly reports data on the dollar value of all financial assistance provided to patients, which we use to calculate the additional income received.
Method for Attributing Outcomes
We estimate the dollar amount of financial assistance attributable to the nonprofit by comparing the financial assistance given by the nonprofit to the financial assistance that would have been provided in the absence of the nonprofit (the “counterfactual”). In this case, we estimate the counterfactual to be zero based on two assumptions. First, we assume there is functionally no upper limit to the amount of cash transfers that continue to be valuable to patients as they are far from reaching the point of diminishing marginal returns, such that aid provided by one nonprofit does not displace aid provided by another. Second, we assume that nonprofits work independently and do not coordinate the provision of aid to the same patient. As a result, all aid provided by the nonprofit to patients with medical conditions can be directly attributable to the nonprofit.
