Keep Swimming Foundation is expanding its mission to help families of critically ill patients cover rent and mortgage payments when their loved one is undergoing an extended inpatient medical crisis.
Recently, Keep Swimming Foundation announced an increase in the value of grants for families in need.
Beginning Q3 of 2018 (7/1/18-9/30-18), all families who apply for a Keep Swimming Foundation grant will be afforded the opportunity to acquire up to $1,500 in financial relief (a $500 increase from the initial $1,000 grant maximum).
With this increase, Keep Swimming Foundation can have a significantly larger impact on the families we aid, such as the McKeon family, who received one of the first Keep Swimming Foundation grants in the foundation’s history.
Keep Swimming Foundation is able to help these families because of the generous donations from our incredible donors. To help families, like the McKeon family, please click here to make a donation today.

The foundation received a large amount of grant requests from patients and their families throughout the country. After analyzing each of the applications, Keep Swimming Foundation's Board of Directors selected four families who will receive varying levels of funding to help supplement their rising debt as they care for their loved one.
The following are the stories of these families.
