Funds from “PHASE ONE’s Tia Palermo Memorial Endowment” support three different programs:

  • Tia’s Hope (, which provides gifts and support to children at hospitals all across the country.
  • PHASE ONE grants that it funds within the foundation’s original mission.
  • Small size grants that typically do not exceed $50,000.00 to support research, treatment and cancer awareness programs in our community that can be outside of the original PHASE ONE mission.
