Support Us Fund

What is a Support Us Fund? When a medical crisis arises, it affects not only the person going through the crisis, but their entire family as well. A support us fund is for the whole family affected by the medical crisis in supporting them financially. A Support Us Fund includes the fact that all monetary donations are tax deductible and managed for a family who is going through a medical crisis. Whether you are a business wanting to contribute funds for your employee; a relative, friend or neighbor who would like to donate money to your loved one who is going through a medical crisis; or an individual who wants to seek funding and contributions, the  Support Us Fund can be established to assist with those needs.
