The Brian Ahearn Children's Fund
000 000 0000
The Brian Ahearn Children's Fund (BACF) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization based in Warwick, NY. It was founded in memory of Brian, who died in 1998 at age 14 after a 10-month battle with brain cancer.

The Brian Ahearn Children’s Fund’s (BACF) have been able to provide:

* $51,000 in scholarships to fifty one (51) Warwick Valley High School
* Over $750,000 to more than 400 families.

We expect 2012 to be another challenging year for families in our area with seriously ill children or families (with children) facing severe hardships. The economic realities of the past few years have resulted in an increase of requests for assistance from families who were previously able to do it on their own.
