Thank You For Being Part Of Our Caring Community

Jim Miles-Polka

During the continuing days of the coronavirus pandemic direct care workers are, at the same time both critically needed and at the forefront of risk through contact with those who need care. We are experiencing that this situation will continue for some time, yet support for our direct care workers has not matched the increasing demand for their consistent care. And in addition, beyond the pandemic, as our population ages we will have an increasing demand for direct care workers within a career that offers many personal hardships for those who choose this path. Iowa CareGivers tirelessly works to support direct care workers through education, training, civic engagement, issue advocacy, public awareness, and other important support for caregivers. Your financial support through a gift to Iowa CareGivers will help improve the challenges direct care workers face on a daily basis so that they can provide the quality care those in need deserve. We – and the caregivers we serve - sincerely appreciate your support.

Iowa CareGivers Endowment:

Margaret Swanson, a long-time community activist and philanthropist, started an endowment fund for Iowa CareGivers upon her passing. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of her beloved family lake cottage paved the way for others to help ensure the future of Iowa CareGivers programs and services…initiatives that assist important and successful programs and services for caregivers. Margaret experienced first-hand the importance of those who work in direct care when her daughter Chris was left in a coma following a head-on car collision, an accident which eventually took Chris’ life. Margaret’s unwavering appreciation of those in direct care lives on through the Iowa Caregivers Endowment.

We ask that you consider a commitment that will have long-term and lasting impact on the lives of Iowans of all ages and abilities by donating to the Iowa CareGivers Endowment to endow the vital programs, scholarships, and services stated above.
