Dorothy D. Rupe Caregiver Program
The Dorothy D. Rupe Caregiver Program provides grants to California-based nonprofit organizations for projects designed to provide education, skills training, and/or respite for family, professional, and volunteer caregivers.
Funds may be used to begin or expand a family caregiver support project. Projects of interest to the foundation include:
- Evidence-based interventions
- Volunteer respite care programs
- Dementia friendly community programs
- Web-based or video training programs
The foundation is particularly interested in supporting innovative, cost-effective projects that help to sustain and relieve caregivers providing home care to a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Projects should fill a gap in existing caregiver services and supports, and benefit lower and middle income families that do not qualify for government assistance.
501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in California are eligible to apply.
