2021 marks the 15th year of the Caregivers Fund. Our employees initiated this program to assist fellow caregivers who struggle just to obtain basic resources to care for those desperately in need. To date, more than $1,500,000 has been raised to support the work of medical providers coping with conditions difficult to imagine. Donations have helped to purchase equipment such as patient lifts and portable dental units, provide medical supplies, food and other necessities to homebound patients, train nurses and care for the medically underserved in clinics and hospitals near and far. CHS donates all administrative costs so that recipients receive 100% of contributions.
How You Can Help
The Catholic Health Caregivers Fund is financed by the generosity of our staff and other interested individuals. The donated funds are dispersed to organizations that help the most underserved individuals, both in the United States and abroad, with essential medical supplies and equipment.
