Benevolence Request Process
In order to receive assistance through A Warriors Mission Inc.’s American Children’s Cancer Benevolence Fund Program (ACCBF), you must first complete the application. Your application will be reviewed by our ACCBF committee in a professional and timely manner. Approval of benevolence requests is determined on a case-by-case basis dependent upon the current funds available and the information provided on the Benevolence Request Application. That is why it is highly important for you to fill out the entire form, submit supporting documents, and be as detailed as possible when necessary, so that the benevolence committee can make a proper determination.
Benevolence requests are reviewed upon a first come, first serve basis. When you fill out the Benevolence Request Application and submit the additional required documents, your information will be sent to the benevolence committee. The committee may take a minimum of (5) business days and a maximum of (90) business days to review all requests. Therefore, please submit your request for assistance as soon as you can. Also, be very careful to submit all additional required documents, as failing to do so can make your application void, or significantly delay the review of your benevolence request.
Upon review of your request, the benevolence committee may contact you by phone, mail, or they may email you with the outcome of your request. We will do our best to use your preferred method of communication as noted in your application.
If your benevolence request is approved, payment will be made directly to the product/service provider on your behalf based on the information you provide in the form. If we are not able to approve your request, we will provide you with an explanation and any other community assistance resources that may be suitable to your needs.
