Treasure Chest Foundation Mourns the Loss of Mr. Phil Finn

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the Treasure Chest Foundation mourns the loss of our first ever pledged donor, Mr. Phil Finn. CEO and Founder Colleen Kisel shared these thoughts on the loss of a great friend and supporter of the Foundation:

Phil’s passion for the Treasure Chest Foundation began in 1999 in an era when we operated out of a basement and stored all of our toy donations in a garage. I remember sitting in my home office in 1999, wondering whether we could keep the ship afloat. The phone rang and it was Phil, whom I’d met for the first time a year earlier. The reassuring voice on the other end of the phone said, “You can count on my company.” And that was the kind of man he was.

Throughout the time I was blessed to know him, Phil genuinely cared about the little ones served by the Treasure Chest Foundation. He often used words like “Thank you for letting us help.”

Phil’s love of the Treasure Chest Foundation and his belief in our mission helped us go from a humble beginning, serving 300 children and teens monthly, to our current level of providing comfort to 9,300 young cancer patients each month in 49 hospitals across 17 states nationwide. And through it all, Phil had only one request: that his gifts were anonymous. Wanting recognition was absolutely out of the question for Phil. Not once was I able to publicly thank him. He was truly a silent hero who seemed so happy to be giving and helping.

It’s the people like Phil who forever leave a lasting impression. We were all so privileged to know him.
