The Phyllis Phund was created in honor of Phyllis Mitra, who passed away suddenly in 2008, so her legacy could continue to give to those in need even in her death. Her grandson, Angelo Mitra, was born with down syndrome in 2009. The Phyllis Phund is a 501(c)3 created by Phyllis’s children and daughter-in-law. We love and miss our mom tremendously, and this allows us to keep her giving spirit alive.
The Phyllis Phund gives 100% of all money raised to families in need who have children with disabilities. One of our favorite traditions that we have adopted is to donate a Christmas to these families. Phyllis and her late husband, Mike, were extremely generous people. Their children now pass along their amazing generosity to those who need it most WHEN they need it most.
The Phyllis Phund is on the list of IRS charitable organizations, and puts on at least one event annually. We make enough money to support the chosen family each year, and the families are chosen by the Board of Directors. We accept family stories anytime of the year, so throw your name or a loved one’s name into the pot to see if we can help make your lives easier. Please give a detailed description of the family dynamics and why you or your loved one should be chosen to receive a Phyllis Phund Christmas this year. We cannot wait to here from you!
Due to an outpouring of contributions after Mike Mitra's passing September 24, 2017, The Phyllis Phund was able to donate to 2 families for Christmas in 2017! Thank you to all who have helped make this happen.
Please give a detailed description of your family situation or a loved one’s family situation to see if you or your loved one will be our next lucky recipient.
