Financial Assistance for Families


We have helped more than 7,158 families including our first international family who had found us on the Internet. The amount of our grants are growing in proportion to the monies coming in to Aubrey’s Foundation. We are pleased to say that we are able to help more families with bigger amounts than we’ve been able to in the past.

Preparing Your Grant Application

The trustees of the Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp Foundation want to give your proposal the consideration it deserves. your grant application is the most important stage in the Foundation’s evaluation of your proposal. For this reason, you should address each question asked, specifically and completely.

The first step in the application process is your “Letter of Inquiry to Apply”. This letter, listing some of the basic information regarding your situation, will assist our Trustees in determining if your request for a grant will be a match with our mission in the community. Some, but not all inclusive, of the initial information will be asked to provide are:

  • Tell us about your family and where you live
  • Description of your child’s situation
  • Objective for what you are asking for
  • Explanation of benefits statement and Coordination of Benefits statement (if applicable) from insurance company(s). Along with copies of actual bills that you want us to pay.

Submitting Your Application

You may submit your application at any time during the calendar year. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees meets quarterly to review grant applications. Applicants will be notified no later than 60 days after review.

Application Timelines

Grants are awarded on a quarterly basis. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees meet in March, June, September and December. Applicants will be notified no later than 60 days after the Board of Trustees’ meeting.


The Aubrey Rose Foundation helps families with children who are currently living with a life-threatening medical condition. Grants are awarded based on need. If a family has outstanding medical bills that insurance will not cover, our Foundation can possibly help out a family in need until our annual funds have been exhausted. As our funds grow, so will the number and the amount of help we will be able to give. We appreciate families just asking for one grant per family so that we can help as many families as possible.

Ineligible Requests

Ineligible requests such as medical bills already paid, submitting for food, clothing, laundry fees, mortgage payments and associated homeowner bills and anything deemed non-medical for your child will not be acceptable criteria to submit a grant request.

Our Guiding Principles

Our philosophy is to provide a balanced giving program that considers the total well-being of the child and how the request benefits their family also. Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp was always a very happy baby throughout everything she endured including a heart and double lung transplant. She smiled continuously throughout her short life. We would like to carry on her spirit by being able to put smiles on other children’s faces and their families. We can do this by helping to pay some medical bills that normally wouldn’t be covered.
