Creating Miracles Grant

"A child is a gift whose worth cannot be measured except by the heart"

 

“Making a Difference One Life at a Time”

The financial expense of infertility procedures causes many married couples to be deprived of the chance of having a child of their own.  It is our hope to close that gap by awarding monetary grants to financially burdened married couples facing the cost of fertility assistance necessary to bring a child into their lives. 

 

Applicants must submit a complete application, a letter for the treating physician, a medical records and information release for each physician treating for fertility issues and employment information release, a financial statement and a copy of the current or most recent year's tax return. Preference will be given to applicants as outlined below.

 

Grant amounts awarded will be at the discretion of Angels of Hope, Inc., based on the selection criteria outlined below, funds available, and the number of applicants.  

If you have questions or need additional information regarding the process, please contact Russelle Holsinger at 815-942-1111.
