Project Overview

Immediate Goal

Our goal is to raise $1,000 as the basis for our direct-to-family support program that will kick off in 2019. Though we will still work with other organizations in the community, it is our goal to work directly with families in their time of need. Your donation will help build the foundation to do just that. A base fund of $1,000 will allow us to directly help four families, with a maximum support amount of $250. As we grow and are able to raise additional funds, we will help even more families and look to expand our maximum support amount. We can't do this without your support. 

What is the Need?

In addition to medical costs faced by the patient, caregivers also experience significant financial costs. A single week of time with a loved one could incur nearly $1,800 by the time you consider meals, lodging, transportation, and parking. Help us offset these costs by donating today.

About The Making Hope Fund

Though there are many programs designed to assist patients going through medical treatment, few programs are designed to focus on the patient’s caregiver(s). When faced with the uncertainty of a serious illness, many caregivers focus exclusively on the needs of the patient. As a result, their health and well-being may suffer as a result. From talking with caregivers, and personal experience of The Making Hope Fund’s founders, these needs are unmet by most existing programs. Our desire is to meet that need. While they are taking care of the patient, The Making Hope Fund will focus on the needs of the caregiver through organizing meals, funding for incidental expenses, assistance with needs related to lawn care and housekeeping during treatment, and other needs that may arise. Through these efforts we feel we are addressing an unmet need in the community.
