Make A Referral

Beloved Foundation is dedicated to supporting advanced stage cancer patients and their families with financial and emotional support services. Our Family and Patient Assistance Grants are intended to be a source of short term relief for family members who are unable to work in order to provide the necessary care for their loved one with advanced stage 4 cancer and to aid the family during the transitional period after loss.

Beloved Grants assist in paying for basic needs such as rent or mortgage payments and utilities up to $2,500 a month for a maximum for 3 months and one time assistance with final expenses** up to $550. This grant is perfect to help bridge the gap between temporary financial distress and a long term solution. If you have a family that was struggling financially before cancer we recommend that you also help connect them with a more permanent solution to their needs.  Please allow 3-4 weeks for application processing. At Beloved Foundation when we determine an applicant is eligible for our grant, We issue checks directly to the landlord or mortgage holder, utility companies or service provider.
