We've done this work since 1987, and we look back with satisfaction on the many precious young lives that were saved and on their families that were spared economic catastrophe.

With the dedicated help of hundreds of volunteers, celebrities, and corporate sponsors, we continue to be a viable source of assistance to Petaluma families in distress. See our video, to get a first-hand look at the issues these families face when life-threatening illness strikes their child. Be uplifted and inspired by seeing how much of a difference the Carousel Fund has made to them.

If you live in Petaluma, and you have a child who needs life-saving medical attention that threatens to bankrupt your family, do not hesitate to contact us! We are here to help.

If you are close to someone facing these daunting challenges, or our work simply speaks to your heart, we can use your help in so many ways. Click on How You Can Help and let us know how you would like to be involved with either your time, or your treasure, or both.
