The process is as follows:

  • Contact Us --- We will receive an email with all of your details.
  • Phone Interview – You must set up a phone interview for us to get a better idea of your situation
  • Fill Out Application – It is a very in depth application. However, if there is something that you are unable to obtain please contact us and we will work with you on an individual basis.
  • A "package" is made from the phone interview and application. The board members will vote on the application package.
  • You will then be notified as to our decision and checks are sent out.

Financial Assistance

Our means of financial assistance are helping those in need seek medical attention by paying doctor bills, hospital bills, and other medical related bills. We will also provide assistance by helping individuals with travel to and from doctors and/or hospitals. Furthermore, those that are in need of assistance in paying for electricity, water, gas, etc. will receive direct aid. These programs are implemented regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

In an effort to help as many people as possible Chiari Fund is working out the details on a innovative project where the person in need can help earn their own donations. What we do is give you all of the materials and anything else related to the fundraiser. You then go out, raise the money and all proceeds go directly to you.

It is important to get your application on file because once funds become available, they will be released immediate to the neediest, as determined by the board.

We are on a funding hold but applications are being accepted --- we are working hard to resume funding soon. even though we are on a hold please get started on the process to get assistance . your application will be on file and funded once funds become available. generally, all applicants are in dire need of assistance so we have no choice but to provide applicants with assistance that get their applications in first.
