The Dale Curtis Stolz Foundation was established in September 2009 in memory of Dale Curtis Stolz. Dale was a happy 3 year old boy who was born with a rare genetic disorder that caused him to be delayed in his physical development. He had several surgeries in his short life and underwent hours of therapy and treatments every week. However, through all his difficulties, Dale had a smile and a giggle that gave joy to all who knew him! His family did all they could to provide Dale with as much normalcy as possible. The daily care for Dale was difficult on his family both emotionally and financially. When Dale passed away on March 16, 2008, his family was determined to keep his memory alive by helping other families with disabled children deal with the financial burdens that are not covered by insurance and aid. This includes household bills that sometimes have to go unpaid when work hours are lost caring for a disabled child, equipment for homes to help make a child’s life easier, help for agencies that provide services to disabled children, and, in the unfortunate situation where a child with a disability passes, help the family with funeral and burial costs. In a time of grief, this can be a painful task that families are not financially prepared for.
The foundation holds several fund raisers throughout the year, including a weekend for Dale at Fink’s Country Farm in Manorville, NY in October. The foundation is run by Dale’s parents and family. Dale’s parents, Billy and Jennifer Stolz, are the president and vice-president. His aunt, Jeninne McCann, is the secretary and his godfather, Matt DiGiovanna is the treasurer. Their goal is to raise funding for suffering children, so that parents and loved ones can spend more time focusing on family time with their children.
We are a family helping families. After the sudden loss of our son we started the Dale Curtis Stolz Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization. Our purpose is to help alleviate some of the financial strain that families with sick or disabled children sometimes face. Our hope is to lift some of the burden so they can focus the child’s quality of life to reach their fullest potential. We strive to give families the help we never received.
