Brave of Heart Fund

New York Life Foundation and the Cigna Foundation in partnership with E4E Relief have established the Brave of Heart Fund to support families of frontline healthcare heroes in their darkest hours. The Brave of Heart Fund provides charitable grants to eligible family members of frontline healthcare workers and volunteers who lose their lives to COVID-19. The Fund launched with $25 million donations each from New York Life and Cigna.

Cash grant awards will provide basic and continuing financial support for critical needs such as funeral costs, medical care, food, educational expenses, mortgage or rent payments and immediate living expenses, as these family members manage the impact of the COVID-19 crisis. Additionally, families of fallen healthcare workers who need help bearing the burden of the economic impact of losing their loved ones to COVID-19 – loss of income, funeral expenses or medical bills – are also encouraged to apply for grants at BraveofHeartFund.com. Individuals DO NOT need to be a New York Life or Cigna client/customer to be eligible.
