Organization Profile

Cleft for a Cause

 Founded: 2013

Co-founders: Hannah and Isabella Summersgill

 Relation to Cause: 

Isabella (right) was born with a bilateral cleft-palate and can relate to any child going through the same long and hard process. The cause is very dear to us, and as sisters, we want to make the process just a little bit easier for another family.  

Recent Events


Many families in the Gulf Coast area are bombarded with expenses due to a need of cleft-palate reconstructive surgeries. We are seeking to ease the load of affected families by providing funds for this cause. 


Our mission is to raise funds to provide necessities for children in need of cleft-palate reconstructive surgeries. We will donate 100% of proceeds to the David Hoffman Memorial Fund, a foundation set up by the Cleft Team to provide funds for expenses for patients and families. These expenses may include cleft-palate reconstructive procedures, dental implants, money for gas, hotels, picnics (patients are given the opportunity to meet other children with cleft palates), teen lunches (lunches specifically for teen cleft palate patients), and other costs suggested by the Cleft Team.
