You can make a difference.


Your donations allow us to continue to grow our services to help Indiana's neglected, abused, and exploited elders.  CARE is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donations are tax-deductible.  We invite you to consider the type of gift you wish to make.

Michelle Niemier, CARE's Deputy Director, welcomes inquiries to ensure your gift is used how you prefer. Contact Michelle at or 317.955.2790.


Advocacy Efforts:

Our lawyer-led team of advocates devote our efforts to direct guardianship services and robust legal advocacy to protect vulnerable Hoosiers from neglect, abuse, and exploitation. Your donation to our Advocacy Efforts will be used for general support of CARE's overall mission.

The Dignity Fund:

Clients for whom CARE serves as legal guardian have left unsafe living situations without any belongings - no shoes, no clothes. Nothing. The Dignity Fund enables CARE to purchase items for these men and women.

Honor & Memorial Gifts:

This new category for donors provides the opportunity to recognize someone special to you. Honorees will receive a special card acknowledging your gift. Likewise, we will send a unique memorial card to the family of  the individual who has passed away.

Workplace Giving:

If your employer offers to match its employees' and retirees' contributions, your gift has an even greater impact. Contact CARE's Deputy Director Michelle Niemier to coordinate how to maximize your gift.

Legacy Gifts:

Donors understand CARE can use our funds today but many want to ensure our at-risk neighbors have CARE by their side for years to come. Inclusion in your estate planning is one of the most effective ways to secure CARE's future. Due to the nature of estate planning, please contact Michelle Niemier to discuss the unique goals you have.
