Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Grant Fund and how do they work?

eFundYourHealth differs from other crowdfunding sites in that we also have a parallel process which allows corporate and individual donors to contribute to a Grant Fund pool designed to assist individuals in meeting their financial needs for their treatment and care.

Unless specified, your donations go directly to eFundYourHealth's general fund which is available for any patient. If you would like to donate for patients with specific illnesses, click on the disease heading to donate here. Add link: https://efundyourhealth.org/campaigns/ As a Grant Fund Donor you receive a tax deduction, but you will not be able to specify the patient that receives financial assistance. Donations made to a specific patient are considered a gift and are not tax-deductible, per IRS regulations. You are still free to donate directly to any patient campaign - this donation is not tax-deductible.

eFundYourhealth distributes Grant Fund money by allocating the Grant Funds raised to each person who starts a campaign at eFundYourhealth, according to availability. The grant amount can be viewed in a pop-up banner by the patient when they start a campaign. Patients start a crowdfunding campaign on eFundYourHealth, and at the end of the campaign, they receive a supplement to the money they raise in their campaign.

Are there any fees to use eFundYourHealth?

How will I know if my money is being used for uninsured medical care?

eFundYourHealth sends a debit card to the Patient. This debit card can only be used for complementary, alternative, or integrative care. Every transaction contains a category code. Our debit cards are set to only approve codes within these approved medical needs. Read more here.
