Each year the Rypien Foundation continues to raise and provide funding to support a number of unique programs and projects that help address the needs of children with cancer and foster a powerful healing environment for child cancer patients in the Inland Northwest.

In addition to supporting programs and projects created or driven by the Rypien Foundation, we also identify and fund quality, community-based, non-profit organizations that provide direct service and support to children and their families battling cancer. Through our grant process, the Rypien Foundation seeks to support programs that are meeting a critical need in our community by enhancing the stability, health and quality of life for children with cancer.
