As 2018 moves along, we are gratified to confirm that our Year-End Campaign has raised over $810,000, a 22 percent increase over 2017. We have received generous gifts from over 800 grateful clients, friends and supporters. These gifts, both large and small, help to ensure that we have the financial resources to provide information, resources and support, 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to help caregivers better navigate the difficult journey ahead.

Our Campaign runs through February 28th and we are well within reach of our one-million-dollar goal. For those who contributed, thank you! If you still have our envelope on your desk, you can still take a minute and send that check along.

A notable highlight of the Year-End Campaign was a generous donation of $25,000 from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA). During the BC/EFA fall fundraising campaign, the company of HELLO DOLLY, including our great friend and supporter, David Hyde Pierce and his co-star, Bette Midler, raised over half a million dollars.

To honor David and the cast of HELLO DOLLY for their outstanding fundraising efforts, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS made a donation to David’s favorite NYC charity, CaringKind. David himself then generously matched this gift for a total contribution of $50,000. We could not be prouder or more grateful!

Many of this year’s campaign contributions arrived with handwritten personal notes. “Thank you for the great work of CaringKind. You are the gift,” cites one. For many of our clients, we have been with them from the initial diagnosis to discussions of hospice and end of life care. I can think of no other organization that has made the investment in supporting dementia caregivers.

As we enter our third year as CaringKind, it is increasingly evident that we made the right decision to focus on care and support. Our caregiver programs and services, most free of charge, remain a lifeline for families affected by a dementia diagnosis. In the absence of a cure, the best course of treatment remains good care, and that is what we have provided to New Yorkers for over thirty years.

While we hope for a cure, and we all do so, we can transform the life of a caregiver, and make their day a little brighter knowing that they are providing the best care possible to an individual with dementia, while finding the way that works best for them, to care for themselves.

Please continue to support CaringKind generously. We have numerous ways to do so that are described on this page as well as throughout this newsletter. And I am happy to speak with you about making a gift.
