Caregiver Grant Application

Yes We Can Sir is excited to announce we are accepting applications for "Caregiver Grant" 2016. Caring for a loved one with cancer can be emotionally, physically and financially difficult. Grants given through our YWCS Caregiver Fund will: Provide opportunities to create family memories, help pay for getaway time for the primary caregiver, assist with expense of counseling for children and families or help cover unexpected household expenses.


The committee reserves the right to call the applicant/nominator (if applicable), and personal reference to discuss the application.

Caregiver aid will be evaluated based on when applications are received, how the funds will be used, purpose of the request, and other information provided in the application. The YWCS board members will review and assess each application on an individual, case by case basis. The board is responsible for the final decision.

Final review of all applications will be held and all awarded nominators and grantees will be notified via email no later than 60 days following the receipt of the application. The grant will be mailed 7-10 business days of notification. If the applicant is denied, the nominator and/or the applicant will notified no later than three weeks following the receipt of the application.
