The Tinina Q. Cade Foundation (Cade Foundation)
The Tinina Q. Cade Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote awareness of infertility and serve the needs of couples struggling with infertility by providing educational resources and financial assistance for helping them grow their families. The foundation prides itself on three main goals: to serve the community by providing education on infertility and related issues working alone as well as in partnership with other organizations; to provide financial assistance for families struggling with infertility who are either pursuing treatment or domestic adoption through grants; and to raise funds that will be used to provide grants for families pursuing fertility treatment or domestic adoption.
Each year the foundation provides selected infertile families up to $10,000 to assist with the costs associated with infertility treatment or domestic adoption.
