"My impossible dream has survived and made a meaningful difference for so many - including me." - Jean Griswold, Founder Donate Today

Where would we be without caregivers? Their selflessness in caring for our loved ones as they age or recover from injury and illness is astounding, yet they are often overlooked and underappreciated. Help us raise $150,000 to offer scholarships that will help Caregivers advance their careers in the care field through educational opportunities. With your financial support, we can provide the funds caregivers need to improve their lives, so they can help improve the lives of those we love.

As of April 1st, our 2024 Summer Scholarship Application window has closed. Stay tuned for Scholarship award winner announcements starting July 30th!

We invite all interested caregivers and their nominating sponsors to sign up for our email list for future scholarship opportunities. We will notify everyone when the next application window opens in September!

$80,000 has been awarded to the 2023 Scholarship winners! Watch the Winter Scholars reactions when they receive the news and learn more about our amazing caregivers.
