Make an Impact
In 2016, The BackStoppers provided $3 million in support. 90% of our budget was spent on the assistance we provide, and 10% was spent on administrative expenses. We are committed to the families we support and the donors who make our assistance possible. Your donation helps families who have lost a loved one. Each contribution helps to alleviate the burdens of families affected by tragedy. Thank you for your support of our mission!
No matter what the hard times are that each of us go through personally, the sad reality remains that others are facing challenges in life that make our problems seem inconsequential in comparison. This is why The Home Loan Expert team believes so passionately in helping others from our community who need extra care and support during their times of hardship. This mentality of “always giving back” allows us to have perspective on how truly blessed we are to have our health and family even in our toughest moments, something that sadly can not be said for those who need our help.
So if we, as a community, can enrich even just one person or child’s life and help them receive the care that they need, then the sacrifice is worth it. The Home Loan Expert doesn’t believe in just writing a check to charity just for a photo opportunity, we actually roll up our sleeves and fight (literally) for the causes we believe in. Whether it be scaling a mountain to raise money for childhood cancer or boxing in the ring to raise money for the families of fallen police and firefighters, Ryan Kelley and our team take each cause to heart. We go the extra step to really get the local community involved so we can truly make a difference in the lives of those who need us most.
In commemoration of KSHE’s 50 year anniversary, the “50 in 50” is The Home Loan Expert’s effort to raise $50,000 over the next 50 weeks. This will be no easy task, we need your help. That’s why we ask that you please donate.
