Creating Miracles Grant

In 2007, Angels of Hope began working on our Creating Miracles grant program. It is our hope that with monetary assistance, we can close the financial gap that stands between married couples and angels_hope_2_babiesthe fertility assistance required to conceive a child.

The financial expense of infertility procedures causes many married couples to be deprived of the chance of having a child of their own. It is our hope to close that gap by awarding monetary grants to financially burdened married couples residing in Will and Grundy counties in the State of Illinois, who are facing the cost of fertility assistance necessary to bring a child into their lives.

Applicants must submit a completed application packet. All the forms may be found on this website. Preference will be given to applicants as outlined on the grant guidelines sheet.

Only applications from married couples residing in Will and Grundy counties in the State of Illinois will be considered.

If you have questions or need additional information regarding the process, please contact us here.
