About Tanner's Team Foundation
We created Tanner's Team Foundation in 2011 to help families with children who are fighting a life-threatening illness. Tanner Fuls, who was diagnosed at age 11 with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), a form of pre-leukemia, passed away November 27, 2010.
Our mission is to carry on Tanner’s legacy. We help families in 45 central Minnesota counties cover housing, transportation, and household costs incurred during their child's care and treatment. Monthly living expenses continue to mount even though parents often have to put their jobs on hold. Families worry and despair about carrying on day-to-day operations that seem meaningless next to the new battle they are facing. Tanner's Team Foundation works to ease these burdens. Our foundation, incorporated in Minnesota, is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to carry on a legacy inspired by Tanner Fuls, a boy who taught us how to live, laugh, and listen. Our foundation will work as a team to financially help families in central Minnesota who have children with life-threatening illnesses.
