Here for you, because we’re family

Here for you, because we’re family

At Cleveland Clinic, we treat each other as family. We are here for each other during challenging times.

The Caregiver Hardship Fund provides financial support to eligible caregivers who are experiencing temporary financial hardships, including those due to COVID-19. This Fund is supported by voluntary charitable donations and grants are based on fund availability. Caregivers are eligible for one application per calendar year. Regular, full-time and part-time caregivers are eligible for a maximum grant of $1,000. PRN caregivers are eligible to receive a maximum grant of $500.

How to apply

Caregivers will now submit their request for assistance through Workday (no longer by email or fax).*

A Caregiver Hardship Committee reviews and approves applications. Applicants will be notified via email and Workday notification if their application is approved within three business days of submitting their request.

Approved grants will be processed (separate from paycheck) as direct deposit into the caregiver’s bank account on file. Funds are grossed-up so caregivers receive the full grant value after taxes are deducted. For those who participate in the Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) with Fidelity, a portion of your award will be deposited in your SIP account.

If you have questions, contact the ONE HR Service Center at 216.448.2247 or email

How to give

If you are not experiencing a hardship and would like to support your fellow caregivers, consider making a gift to the fund.

*Caregivers working at Akron General, Indian River, Martin Health and Union Hospital should refer to their hospital’s specific programs and guidelines. Professional staff members should contact the Office of Professional Staff Affairs for assistance with hardships.
