A foundation helping kids with life-threatening medical challenges

Tori's Angels Foundation brings people together to provide and receive life-changing help. The 

foundation provides opportunities for community members across Central Iowa and beyond to make a 

difference in the lives of infants, children, and adolescents with life-threatening challenges.  

We reach out to the community both near and far to gain the needed funds to distribute to families who 

need real-life angels to help them through one or more crises.

The foundation, EIN 45-2516181, is a non-profit corporation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue 

Code. The foundation pays for all medical expenses not covered by insurance, including: travel expenses 

to treatment (airfare or mileage, hotels, meals), co-pays, deductibles, and prescription medicine.  

Each child is supported from the date of acceptance until his/her 19th birthday.


Families of children who live in Iowa and have health insurance, but are having trouble 

paying non-covered expenses, should contact our foundation for an application for assistance. 

Contact Chairman and CEO Bill Ridgley at 712-249-6423 or at bridgley@netins.net.


Our primary fundraising season is Spring through late Fall.
