What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The CORD Cares Foundation began in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in August 2017. The CORD membership came to leadership with questions of how to help their brothers and sisters who were affected by this storm and the subsequent storms that followed. CORD immediately released $10,000 to assist any individual or program that needed support. In the days and weeks after, the Foundation raised an additional $15,000 to support the cause. The CORD Cares Foundation supports more than natural disaster events. In October 2017, the CORD Cares Foundation provided the University of Las Vegas School of Medicine a grant to bring in qualified support after the horror of the Las Vegas shootings. This foundation was created to support the CORD membership in any capacity it can. The CORD membership and their well-being are a priority and we hope the CORD Cares Foundation will continue to be a beacon of hope for those who find themselves in need.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The CORD Board of Directors created the CORD Cares Foundation to offer assistance to Emergency Medicine professionals who are experiencing an unexpected financial crisis or need.

Emergency Medicine Professionals may apply for grants from the CORD Cares Foundation to help with any unexpected financial crisis or need that is not covered in another manner (through reimbursement at their institution or insurance).

CORD Cares has instituted an application process to evaluate the needs of each applicant. Applicants do need to submit receipts or estimates of their financial needs. The application is then reviewed and funds are dispersed to the individual.

Funding for all applications comes from funds donated to CORD Cares by the CORD members and other Emergency Medicine Professional Organizations donations.

CORD Cares has so far been able to approve funding for ALL applications submitted by Emergency Medicine Professionals in need.

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
