Kindred Cares Grant 2023 - Now closed for 2023
In 2021, Kindred Foundation established the Kindred Cares Grant to help fund programs, projects and research in the area of hospice, palliative, and end-of-life care, for both adults and children with life-limiting conditions. The Kindred Cares Grant was created to:
Support community-based hospice/palliative care and/or programming for adults in Ontario or children across Canada.
Assist with projects, programs, and research related to palliative care for children with life-limiting conditions happening across Canada.
Address important questions and needs relating to the clinical care and preferences of adults and/or children with life-limiting conditions, and their families.
The Kindred Cares Grant is administered and managed by Kindred Foundation. The amount allocated each year will vary; however, the goal is to grow the Kindred Cares Grant as an important funding initiative in Kindred Foundation.
To help fund programs, projects, and/or research in two areas, each of which has a separate stream of funding as detailed below:
Funding Stream One: Pediatric Palliative Care
