3-STEP PROCESS

Please accept our help by following this 3-step application process and asking questions along the way by emailing info@thecarefund.org. You may fill out the application and medical certification online, or download the forms to be emailed to info@thecarefund.org or faxed to 480-223-6311.

STEP #1

COMPLETE THE APPLICATION

Complete all questions in the application. If a question does not pertain to your situation, simply write ‘N/A’ in the field. During this step you will be asked to provide two of your most recent pay stubs from all income sources and all pages of your most recent mortgage statement or lease agreement, to be emailed or faxed.

PLEASE NOTE:

We will contact you if information appears to be missing, as it may impact or delay the decision-making process by Care Fund’s Review Committee.

STEP #2

HAVE YOUR PROVIDER COMPLETE THE MEDICAL CERTIFICATION

All fields of the medical certification must be submitted by your child’s medical provider or hospital social worker. It can be completed online or downloaded to be emailed or faxed.

STEP #3

WAIT FOR CARE FUND’S APPLICATION REVIEW AND CONTACT

The final step is Care Fund’s time to review and verify the information you and your medical team have provided, and to discern your application. Follow-up questions may be done verbally or in writing. Application approval is made at the sole discretion of Care Fund on a case-by-case basis, based on available funds.

THIS STEP INCLUDES:

  • Verification of eligibility based on Care Fund giving guidelines.

  • Verification of information (employment, income, mortgage, rent, medical certification, etc.).

  • A meeting of Care Fund’s Review Committee to determine whether assistance will be approved or denied.

  • Contact by a member of our team to inform you of the Review Committee’s final determination. If you are awarded assistance, we will review the parameters and timeframe with you at this time.
