How It Works
Anyone may make a donatinon to the caring fund. All money will be used to pay for midwife fees, birth supplies, prenatal vitamins, ultrasounds, and lab work for clients in financial need; and to maintain the fund operations (pay credit card processing fees, cost of printing, etc.).
- Specific Family: You may donate to the fund to contribute to the needs of a specific family. This money will be applied to the balance due for the family you name in the comments section of your donation. Any additional money received for family, over the amount needed to pay their account in full will be transferred to the General Fund. The name of the family/woman will not be shared publicly without consent. Therefore, people donating to that family will need to know about the need from the family themselves, or friends and relatives of the family.
- General Fund: The money will be used for any family who has applied for help and been approved by the council.
Applicants to the fund will need to fill out an application and are required to follow some basic rules for using the fund. The Caring Fund Council will consider all applications for help from the fund and deny or approve each application individually. The fund cannot run "in the red." If there is no money in the fund, no applications can be approved. To apply for help from the fund, please ask your midwife about applying.
We are not a 501c3 Not-for-profit, therefore you will need to ask your tax professional if your donations to us are tax deductible.
Make a donation by clicking the "Donate" button above, enter the dollar amount you wish to send, and in the "note" section tell us if you want the money to go to the General Fund or to a Specific Family. To help pay the needs of a Specific Family, please include the name of the mother. All donations over and above the amount needed to pay the account of the Specific Family will be rolled into the General Fund following the close of care for the Specific Family.
Thank you so very much for helping!
