Our Quick Check Program
The goal of our nonprofit is to help professional caregivers--nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, volunteer coordinators, physicians, and chaplains--provide the best possible care to low-income, END-OF-LIFE patients.
Thoughtful, imaginative caregivers understand that during such difficult times the most modest of gifts can dramatically improve a patient's care, mood, and outlook on life. See our "SUGGESTED GIFTS" page for ideas.
Our Quick Check Program is simple: We mail checks of up to $150.00 to caregivers like you to help pay for gifts you have identified as important to your patient's' improved well-being.
LIMITATIONS OF THE PROGRAM
1. The maximum distributable amount for the same patient in a 30-day period is $150.00.
2. We regret that our assistance DOES NOT INCLUDE :
a) Paying for items or services that are"medical" in nature, or
b) Helping with rent, mortgage payments, utility bills or funeral expenses.
3) We also ask for prompt proof-of-purchase to help prevent fraud. As not to be overly burdensome, we accept photocopies sent either by mail or as an email attachment.
SIMPLE STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
Step 1. Identify the patient's non-medical need.
Step 2. Locate and identify the specific item or service you wish to purchase.
Step 3. Fill out (completely) the application form on our website. Note: Be sure to give us your full MAILING address -- this prevents the postal service returning our check as "undeliverable."
Step 4. Send the completed application to us by simply clicking the "Submit" button.
Step 5. TILT will notify you of our decision via email or telephone--It is our goal to respond within a 48-hour period.
Step 6. If your request is approved, a check will be promptly mailed to your workplace in the approved amount.
Step 7. Once you receive our check, purchase the approved item or service and make it available to your patient in a timely manner.
Note: We ask that you notify us when you get our check, so that we know it has been timely received.
