a smile goes a long way

bring hope and encouragement

Our Pot of Gold program has provided over 700 children, and their siblings, with a moment of encouragement and hope in a long battle with childhood cancer.  It is important to us that we recognize and celebrate our superheroes and we show up big for their courage and be the voice saying, “we are with you”.  This mission has led us to over 100 children hospitals, and we need to reach more.

our long term mission

Reach Children Fighting Cancer in the United States

GRCF works with a number of children’s hospitals and has delivered over 800 Pots of Gold – but it isn’t enough.  We want to make sure we bring hope and encouragement to every child who needs it at that critical time.  We also want to see increased research funding and better treatments for children fighting cancer.  We want to be a voice for the voiceless.

Why We Need You

You get to meet childhood cancer families

Few organizations provide you with a chance to meet the heroes we support directly.  Our Pot of Gold program is a direct patient support program and your volunteer experience can include opportunities to meet them and be the one delivering hope and encouragement.

Online training makes it easy for you to get up to speed

Our online volunteer portal helps you to learn what you need to in order to join Gold Rush Cure Foundation as a volunteer.  Simple videos and guides will tell you about our process and make it easy for you to represent GRCF and be an advocate for children fighting cancer.

We plan ahead so you can volunteer when you want

The Pot of Gold program is well planned and each delivery has a process.  We help you manage this and plan ahead so you can volunteer when your schedule allows.  Flexibility is essential.  GRCF will still occasionally do last minute and urgent requests but we will send an email for sign-ups when these opportunities come up.

Represent GRCF at events and fundraisers

Help represent GRCF at fundraisers, events and in-person functions.  We would love to have you represent us and children fighting cancer.  Our volunteers are given in-person opportunities through our volunteer portal.

covid-19 notice

Since early 2020 GRCF has made several modifications to our original plan. We are mindful of our young heroes fighting cancer, many of whom are immunocompromised and going through difficult treatment. While GRCF is following the lead of our children’s hospital partners, our COVID-19 policy for the Pot of Gold Program is in line with current CDC guidelines. Volunteers working with the Pot of Gold program are asked to:

GRCF always relies on the parents to make the ultimate decision on delivery location and preferences. Volunteers for GRCF will reach out prior to discuss deliveries and allow the parent(s)/guardians to make the best decision for their family.

No GRCF events are currently impacted by COVID-19 and will proceed as scheduled.
