Cohen Foundation Grant

Harboring Hearts is honored and grateful to be receiving a $25,000 grant from the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Foundation! The foundation is committed to philanthropy and community services and gives to organizations that improve children’s healthcare and education, serve the underserved, support the arts, protect the environment, and further Lyme and tickborne disease research. Their grant was given in honor of World Heart Day! 


This grant will be used to support heart patients and their families through the Harboring Hearts Emergency Fund. The Emergency Fund provides emergency housing, transportation, and food to transplant and cardiac surgery patients and their families. In recognizing that having family close by aids in healing, this support is meant to be a safety net for families during their critical time of need. The generosity of the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Foundation will not only allow the Emergency Fund to continue but to expand and thrive. 


We want to say thank you to the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Foundation from all of us at Harboring Hearts for allowing us to continue impacting the lives of heart patients and their families. Their support will allow us to help more cardiac surgery and transplant patients over the next year!
