Our Core Principals & Mission

We hold fundraising events so we may raise awareness about CF and provide financial aid due to unforeseen health problems along with educational scholarships to local families dealing with CF. We hope that through this foundation, we can help to provide the much needed support to those who need it the most, during their hardships and times of financial distress while dealing with this disease.

What We Do

Breathe is an approved 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded in 2013 to benefit local New Jersey residents with Cystic Fibrosis. Through grants and fundraising efforts, we will actively raise money to provide financial aid due to unforeseen health problems along with educational scholarships to help these residents with Cystic Fibrosis make the dream of higher education a reality. Because of our commitment to help our local CF community, we will know exactly where and why every dollar is spent and get to see its impact immediately.

Why We Do It

In honor of Morgan Lucas Schuldt, poet, publisher, editor, teacher and writer, BREATHE provides financial assistance to advance the educational goals and quality of life of children and adults living with Cystic Fibrosis in the state of New Jersey. We believe that all New Jersey students, despite their health status or financial situation, should have the opportunity to pursue an advanced degree. We strive to instill in these residents the value of self-sufficiency and perseverance.
