The Moonlight Fund
Moonlight Fund Inc. was founded in 1998 in San Antonio, Texas, by Celia Belt and fellow burn survivor Henry Coffeen III, the staff at the Burn Unit at the San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC), and executives at Ernst & Young. It provides financial, emotional and in-kind assistance to burn survivors and their families. Moonlight Fund has helped nearly 5000 burn survivors and their family members. It is the only organization of its kind, offering services from onset of an injury, through rehab and on into the patient’s and families’ new lives. The organization helps military and civilian survivors in many ways, including paying medical bills, providing financial aid to finish college degrees, building and furnishing homes, and most importantly, providing a support system when it is most desperately needed.
