The Queen of Hearts Foundation: Family Helping Families

Welcome to The Queen of Hearts Foundation, Inc. Dedicated to fundraising and growing awareness in support of those suffering from cancer or awaiting or recovering from organ transplantation, our 100% volunteer organization works to assist local families when they need it most.

The Queen of Hearts family seeks to provide financial assistance to individuals and families dealing with the stress, uncertainty and financial burden associated with the battle against cancer and illness.

Nearly every family faces these challenges at some point, and The Queen of Hearts Foundation understands, first hand, the need for support during these difficult times. OUR family is dedicated to alleviating financial burden so YOUR family can better focus on a return to good health.

Since 2003, Marjorie Sprague, Founder of The Queen of Hearts Foundation, has been raising money and awareness in support of the cancer and organ donor communities. Marjorie’s passion stems from personal experience. She received the precious gift of life twice; first beating non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1997, then receiving a new heart in 2005.

These humbling experiences led Margie to start The Queen of Hearts Foundation in order to provide financial assistance to individuals and families coping with the day to day challenges associated with life-altering illness.

Since 2003, the Hammonton, NJ-based Foundation has grown, and continues to reach more families every year. By taking advantage of the opportunities given to her, Marjorie and the Foundation work tirelessly to help others fighting for that second chance at life.

The Queen of Hearts Foundation is a totally volunteer organization that thrives (and relies) on getting people involved. Our goal is to organize and inspire our local communities to directly assist families who need our help. We keep operating costs low, motivation high and our focus local to maximize the assistance we are able to provide.

Are you willing to help The Queen of Hearts Family reach more families? One person, one donation can make a difference. Please support the Queen of Hearts Foundation and help make that difference!

You have the power to give the most precious gift in the world… LIFE!

Mission Statement

Our Goal: Bring Relief to Local Families When They Need it Most

The Queen of Hearts Foundation provides critical financial relief to people coping with one of two major life challenges: surviving cancer or waiting for or recovering from organ transplantation. By reducing financial stress for people who struggle with life-altering illness, we improve the quality of life for entire families and ease the path to recovery.

Program Summary

Year-round Fundraising. Putting Your Donations to Work.

Headquartered in Hammonton, NJ, The Queen of Hearts Foundation, Inc. was formed by Marjorie Sprague, a cancer survivor and organ recipient dedicated to helping others in the fight for their lives. With Marjorie’s vision, the efforts of our 12 board members and countless volunteers from the local community, the organization has grown from beginnings in 2003 to a successful nonprofit organization distributing more than $50,000 annually to families in need of financial assistance.

Our year-round fundraising campaign, centered on 4 major events each year, gives The Queen of Hearts Foundation the opportunity to help more people every year. We rely on direct donations and the success of our fundraising events to aid us in providing this much-needed relief. A 100% volunteer organization, The Queen of Hearts Foundation keeps operating costs at a minimum to ensure that the funds we raise are quickly and efficiently put to work helping others. We are proud to continually demonstrate to our donors the direct impact their donation makes in the lives of local families.

Funding Focus Area

Making a Local Impact

The Queen of Hearts Foundation serves individuals and families in South Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. Although The Queen of Hearts Foundation stands together with all of those living with cancer or awaiting or recovering from an organ transplant, we’ve found that the most effective way to maximize the value of our work is to focus our efforts locally.

Currently, The Queen of Hearts Foundation assists families living in Ocean, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Atlantic, Cumberland and Cape May counties in NJ; and Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in PA.
