Jack and Barbara Nicklaus and the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation have made significant strides toward their $80 million goal to help children in need of life-changing medical care. Two years after the launch of the Jack and Barbara Nicklaus Children’s Legacy Fund, the endowment is at the halfway mark.
“Jack and I have had the honor to play a role in some amazing success stories by helping children receive the medical treatments they need to live healthy lives,” said Barbara Nicklaus, founder and chair of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. “It’s been a joy to see the community step forward to make sure these kids get vital care.”
Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation established the fund in honor of Jack and Barbara’s 80th birthdays to create a secure future for sick children locally and globally. Thanks to a $1.5 million donation from The Frank DiMino Foundation, the fund has surpassed the $40 million mark. Darren Bardell and family from the Wellington-based foundation recently presented the check to Jack and Barbara.
“We believe in Jack and Barbara’s vision to help children receive lifesaving care and are thrilled to be a part of these second chances,” said Darren Bardell, Executive Director of The Frank DiMino Foundation.
Jack and Barbara Nicklaus founded the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation in 2004 to provide world-class, pediatric care to children in Palm Beach County and beyond. The Foundation supports Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, which has helped children from every state in the union and 119 countries.
