Tammy Heeber supports several children and animal rescue charities including:
Angel Dog Rescue –
Angel Dog Rescue is located in rural Georgia and works to rescue and rehabilitate the many neglected animals in the area. They rely solely on donations to support their rescue efforts. They do so much with so little.
St Jude Children’s Hospital
Unlike other hospitals, the majority of funding for St. Jude Comes from generous donors. It costs $2.2 million per day to operate St. Jude and public contributions provide 75 percent of the funds necessary to operate the hospital.
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. While we accept insurance, many services provided by St. Jude have never been covered by insurance, and will not be in the Future. In fact, only 14% of the money to operate the hospital comes from insurance recoveries and 9% comes from grants. This is vastly different than most other hospitals that can generate more than 90% of their revenues from insurance recoveries and other sources. And it’s a different financial and operating model than large grant-making charities.
