The Joey Bella Memorial Fund is non-sectarian and non-denominational. Although it was originally created for children with leukemia and diseases that attack the bone marrow and blood system, young victims of other catastrophic illnesses or accidents who live in Denville and the surrounding areas are also eligible for assistance.
Anyone seeking our help must first file a formal application with our board to be sure certain income and financial requirements are met. Each family’s situation is treated with respect, consideration, and confidentiality. Assistance is then granted based on need and the availability of funds. We do not provide monetary grants directly to the families. Instead, we provide temporary financial support to help cover travel expenses and other financial obligations not covered by medical insurance.
