One of the most popular funds that Caregivers like to support is the 'Care for the Caregivers' fund. This fund was created by Caregivers to provide support to our coworkers who have experienced a major loss, catastrophe, illness, or medical condition that adversely affects the well-being of the Caregiver, significant other, and any dependents.
