The Catie White Foundation distributes funds through three basic outlets at this time.
First, is distribution to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH. The CWF created the Catie White Epilepsy Assistance Grant at NCH which the facility uses to help families who struggle paying their medical bills associated with pediatric epilepsy.
Second, the foundation supports National Epilepsy awareness month in November. CWF distributes care packages to the epilepsy care units at Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus, OH and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, PA.
The final outreach of the foundation is helping individual families battling the institutional medical expenses of their child with epilepsy. These families receive no direct funds but are able to turn in their medical bills and the foundation pays them directly to the hospital.
*All fund distribution is completed at the full discretion of the CWF board of directors.
