Tax Deductible Donations Through The Burn Institute

In its ongoing mission to support burn survivors and their families, the Burn Institute has created the Marius Fund, designed to specifically to assist Marius. The Marius Fund will help cover living expenses, transportation costs, and other expenses related to Marius’s rehabilitation and specialized care.

Because the Burn Institute is a 501C3, all donations to the Marius fund are fully tax deductible. There are also no administrative fees associated with this fund so your entire donation will go to the benefit of Marius.

The donation process is all online and quick and easy. When you click on the link below, you will be taken to the Burn Institute website. In completing the form, be sure to select the Marius Fund in Program Designation (see image below). This will ensure that your donation goes directly to Marius.

Thanks again for your wonderful support and interest in this amazing little boy.
