CHARITYSMITH was established in 1994 by Brooks H. Rohlen, MD as the Douglas F. Smith Memorial Foundation (DFSMF). This initial memorial foundation gave a scholarship each year to a student, artist, or athlete.
Over the years we saw the need for a cost-effective avenue to quickly and easily establish a nonprofit foundation in memory of a loved one (just like the DFSMF). Because of this our mission has evolved to what it is today — creating and administering memorial funds for others. For those who feel inspired to do so, CHARITYSMITH offers a simple and expedient pathway to the creation of memorial funds. By contributing to the lives of others, we remember and honor the lives of those who have passed.
Monies raised by our memorial funds are distributed toward scholarships, grants, medical research, or donated to families in need — but you decide how, where, and when the money from the memorial fund you establish will be donated.
