The mission of SAM’S POSSE is to enrich the lives of children living with intellectual and physical disabilities by supporting their needs and wishes.
In 2012 SAM’S POSSE was formed as a team and participated in a fundraiser benefiting the Make A Wish Foundation. In just four years, The POSSE would raise $100,000.00 in support of Make A Wish, funding numerous wishes and fulfilling the dreams of children with life threatening illnesses. Realizing that SAM’S POSSE was capable of great things, Sam’s parents Buck and Deborah, decided to honor their son’s legacy by forming a 501(c)3 charitable organization. In doing so, SAM’S POSSE is now able to fundraise and support many non profit organizations with the same goal. Our dedicated Board Of Directors, will carefully vet and select deserving charities that meet our requirements.
Throughout Sam’s lifetime, there were many non profit organizations which provided services to enrich his life. It is organizations like these that have inspired the Burts to pay it forward. Some examples are…
- Therapeutic Riding Programs
- The Miracle League
- The Make A Wish Foundation
- Morgan’s Wonderland
SAM’S POSSE is well aware that you have many choices when it comes to charitable giving. We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about who we are and what we do. It is our hope that you will join us as we continue, Granting Wishes and Changing Lives.
