Our Mission



The Cash Scanlon Phillips Foundation was formed as a direct result of the memorial fund established at the Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation in memory of Cash Scanlon Phillips.  With funds continuing to grow each year, we decided that more charitable work could be accomplished to benefit Colorado children.

We provide 3 areas of funding

  1. Children’s Charities
  2. Helping Children with Life-Threatening Illnesses
  3. Adoption Assistance

Children’s Charities


Baby Cash died of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA,) a rare neuromuscular disorder with no treatment at that time. But new treatments have since become available, so to help other families with this diagnosis, we’ve sponsored events for CURE SMA. Learn more about SMA.

We also make financial awards to charitable organizations in the state of Colorado that are directly involved in improving health and wellness for children.  We provide unrestricted gifts to nonprofits like Children’s Hospital Foundation that share our mission of improving quality of life for all children.  If you are a non-profit Colorado children’s charity seeking grant funding, contact us today.

Family Assistance

For children facing life-threatening or life-altering conditions

We provide financial assistance to make the lives of families with terminally-ill children more comfortable so they can focus on caring for their child.  If you know of a family struggling to provide care for a sick or terminally-ill child, contact us today.

Adoption Assistance

Helping families grow and thrive

After the devastating loss of their beloved son Cash, Page and Tess brought closure to their lives through the adoption of an adorable 3-year-old from South Korea named Wan. Through their journey, they learned firsthand the challenges and pitfalls that adoptive parents face. With the cost of adoption often exceeding $30,000, many families suffer financial ruin in the process. The Cash Scanlon Phillips Foundation provides qualified couples and individuals in the state of Colorado with financial assistance to offset the cost of adoption. Without regard to race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation, we help families overcome the financial hurtles of adoption so that they may unite with a child in need of a loving home.

Do you need financial assistance to adopt a child? If you have a complete, certified home study that has been approved by a qualified agency or licensed professional in Colorado, contact us today.
