Would You Like To Help Financially?
If you’ve ever been a caregiver, you know how difficult that job can be, and how much you wished for help that may not have come. That kind of help is what Caring For The Caregiver is here to provide.
For the past 8 years, Caring for the Caregiver has been supported by public funding and 100 hours a week of volunteer elbow-grease (figure 5,000 hours per year!) by our staff of 4. We have had great hands-on support from the our Board and major funding from Episcopal Charities of Long Island.
We received $35,000 in grants last year from 5 different sources and we were able to set up 5 different locations where our Caring For the Caregiver program has been introduced to the community. We’re supporting Long Island caregivers, week in and week out with our Caring and Healing Circles. We’ve applied to many more charitable organizations recently.
Our mission – every caregiver on Long Island within 30 minutes of a Caregiver program! If we can fulfill our 2015 mission we can come pretty close with a total of 15 Long Island locations.
If you’d like to find out more about helping fund our programs, please call us at 516-921-0755.
Finally, we’ll say THANK YOU, VERY MUCH! for whatever you give.
If you’re ready to act now, call Roger Schilling, at 516 747-6525 and he will be happy to discuss funding opportunities with you.
Friends or Partners in Caring For The Caregiver
How can I help? Join our Friends or Partners programs and you will.
If you would like to help us support Caregiving, we can help you contribute meaningfully. And we’ll contribute back.
If you take on “Caregiver Friend” status:
1. We’ll put your name or your business name on our website (which will give you extra Google creds.) Over 120 people a week travel the site. We’ll link the business description you supply to this listing.
2. We’ll keep you posted on what Caring For The Caregiver is accomplishing on a monthly basis.
3. We’ll invite you to participate in some of our programs – like our next Caregivers’ Fair. We’re scheduling four more for Long Island this year. This is an exciting time for Caregivers – they discover that “they are not alone!” and we want them to see that you and your organization stand by them. If you market to caregivers, we have a program for you. And, at the start, we’ll ask you for a contribution of $100.
What’s a “Caregiver Partner?” Someone who financially supports an individual Caregivers’ Fair/Caring Circle program. As a Caregiver Partner, you and your business will sponsor a particular Caregivers’ Fair/Caring and Healing Circle event. You will actually cause the program to take place. We’ll draft speakers, create flyers and posters, find a hall or other locale, generate mailers, get publicity, and make it happen. At the program, we’ll ask you to speak about Caregiving and about being a Partner. You’ll be publically thanked, and singled out for the attention of all the Caregivers present – estimate 60-120. If Caregivers are your customers, those who attend will get to know you as a friend, and as a preferred supplier.
We will celebrate your support, and work out ways to make this sponsorship work for you and your business. We will key your support into our presentations, our promotions, publicity, and the entire program. This will be “your day!” The cost for the Caregiver Partnership is $1500, which defrays half the $3,000 total expenses of generating the Caregivers Fair, and training Facilitators for the subsequent Caring Circle. Expenses include printing 4-color leaflets, providing food, managing transportation for speakers, aggressive publicity, email connections to our networks, and so forth – details available. Your cost will show up as a donation – which can give you tax mitigation.
Caring For The Caregiver is going through a remarkable growth process, so please grow with us. Our mission is this: No caregiver on Long Island will be more than a 30 minute drive from a Caring and Healing Circle- one of the most effective Caregiver support groups ever created. The circles are not disease- specific. This year we want to set up 4-5 more Caring Circles on Long Island. See http://www.caringforthecaregiver.org. We appreciate your help in getting this huge goal accomplished.
