About the SFHMF Foundation

The Sarah Faith Hogan Memorial Foundation (SFHMF) provides assistance to families in financial need, that have infants born with health deficiencies. The Foundation raises funds through personal and corporate donations, fundraisers and special events. We disburse raised funds to nominated and vetted families that qualify for financial support. Health deficiencies eligible for funding are broadly defined as being structural defects, functional/ developmental, sensory problems, metabolic disorders and degenerative disorders. Families with infants who are born with a health deficiency, up to the age of 24 months are eligible for financial assistance. Assistance for up to $5,000 per family can be provided for basic needs (food, clothing and shelter), specialized child care, prescription drugs, additional housing costs (rents/renovations), assistance in acquiring specialized equipment not covered by insurance (standing frames, bathing equipment, specialized chairs, walkers, seating systems, etc.); transportation, bridge funding for therapy and more.

The Sarah Faith Hogan Memorial Foundation was formed in loving memory of Sarah Faith Hogan and is dedicated to the selflessness and courage of Sarah’s family. This foundation attempts to provide a small dent in the staggering financial burdens families face through their child’s first months and years of life.

The SFHMF board is made up of 6 very dedicated professionals who have combined their individual strengths, talents and networks to form this wonderful foundation. They are all very passionate about fundraising, creating awareness and partnering up to help families in need.


The board is especially proud of what makes this charity different and is looking forward to continuing to help many more Alberta families in the future.

What Makes this Charity Different?

  • SFHMF disburses 100% of every dollar donated directly to families in need.
  • SFHMF is able to cut through red tape and vet nominated families quickly in order to deliver funds when they are needed most. Our Head of Nominations & Vetting Coordinator works with the families and social workers to determine the best way to disburse funds to directly and most effectively help the infants and their families.
  • SFHMF Board of Directors and committee members are 100% volunteers.
  • The Sarah Faith Hogan Memorial Foundation helps local families right here in Alberta and have a continued relationship with social workers at the Alberta Children’s Hospital (Calgary) and the Stollery Children’s Hospital (Edmonton) for assistance in nominations and vetting of our SFHMF families.
