Szott Foundation Testimonials from Gift of Time Recipients



To all the amazing people at the Szott Foundation, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” Mandy Creekmore


“We received support from many places. The last one I'd like to talk about is one that truly helped us out and we feel very blessed. It is one most of you have never heard of. It is the Andrew and Abby Szott Foundation out of the Twin Cities. They grant money to enable one parent to stay home on a full-time basis to care for their sick child. When the social worker gave us the application, it was a very stressful time and we set it aside. She encouraged us to fill it out, so we did, early one morn while our brains had a little juice left. A board of directors reviews all applications and they decide to whom the grant of the "Gift of Time" money will go. A few days later, we received a letter saying we were granted this gift. I cried hard and long!! It was very overwhelming for us to know that there are such special people who take such good care of others. It truly was a gift from God, we believe.”


“I am so grateful to have been a recipient of your award.  That was one of the greatest gifts that came my way last year -- to be home with Cameron during a paramount time in our lives.”


“Your generosity allowed me to stay home with my son. I cherished those last few weeks with him. We would play with his puppy, build Legos, and my favorite, simply holding him in my arms while we watched Spongebob!”

“When I received your award letter in the mail, a wave of relief came over me. In the midst of cancer and financial worries and the possible pain of losing a child, I feel that a weight has been lifted off me. I can now shift my focus entirely to the care of my son.”


“We feel truly blessed. We pray that in the years ahead, we also, might be able to help others.


May god give you the strength to keep doing what you do.”


“My daughter had problems with the toilet paper and tissues, so I bought a bunch and gave it to all the families on the floor. I couldn’t have done it without you.”


“We can't thank you enough for what you have done for us.  It still is just unbelievable. Thank you again sooooo much!!!”


“Time is so precious, and with this gift we as a family can focus on caring for and loving our son without the burden of wondering how we're going to make ends meet.”


“How do we ever thank you all? Your prayers, love, and generosity have eased the monetary worries and have enabled me to be with William both day and night.”

“We look forward to the opportunity of supporting your foundation in the future.”


“Honestly, the Szott Foundation saved us financially!”


“Words can't express how blessed our family feels that you chose us!”


“I hope that you will someday see your vision of becoming a nationwide foundation come true, as your family's story is truly remarkable and would touch the lives of many. 


“The work you are doing is having a profound impact in many different lives and I am honored to be a part of that.”


“I am so overwhelmed by your generosity.  My wife and I talked about it on the way home and we simply wept.  This is an unfamiliar position that we are in. We have rarely been on the receiving end of so much generosity.  Our friends and family have been such a blessing to us during this time, and when I received your call I just started crying and had to step away from my family.  It truly means a lot!  Thank you simply doesn't capture what we are trying to convey.”


“We feel so blessed to have received this gift and the relief it has given us, knowing that I can stay with our son through his treatments and not have to worry about lost income.”
