Providing grants to the families served by Love for Lily.

$30,000 goal

Love for Lily provides grants to qualifying families in the Neonatal ICU (NICU) on a monthly basis. The purpose of our grant program is to ease the burden of ongoing care for underinsured families. The mission of our grant program is to provide a helping hand to fill the gap. 

The grant program is about supporting the community that Love For Lily has built. We are proud to say that we have given close to $130,000 in the last 10 years. We hope you will join us in the support of the families we serve! 

Grant Programs:

Lions Love: Our signature grant program seeks to support families in receiving therapies, services, or modalities after discharge that contribute to the health and well-being of their children. Available to families served in Colorado, who spend 4 consecutive weeks in the NICU. These are $500 grants up to $1000 per family. This grant is given in loving memory of Daniel the Lion.

Esme Grace: Because the littlest footprints leave the biggest marks on our hearts, Esme Grace’s Love is a grant to support the urgent necessities for in-unit families served in Colorado. (Grant $100 Gift Card) Esme Grace is a NICU warrior we are inspired by.

Ryder's Love: Expanded reach for families served outside of Colorado who spend 4 consecutive weeks in the NICU. Ryder’s Love seeks to offer families a hand-up allowing access to receive therapies, services, or modalities that contribute to the health and well-being of their baby(ies). These are $500 grants. This grant is given in memory of Ryder Johnson and in partnership with Ryders Fund.

Lawson’s Love: Provides a $250 gift card for families who have said goodbye to their babies too soon. This grant is given to support the wellbeing of the family. Lawson’s Love grants can be used for therapeutic services and burial expenses. This grant is given in memory of Lawson Becker.

Previous Grant Awardees:

"Love for Lily's Ryder Grant has allowed me to care for my son in ways that would have been financially impossible due to his extended NICU stay and copays and deductibles. I am forever grateful for the generosity of the donors and the committee for helping my sweet Caio and me thrive through this process." - Baby Caio's Mama

"My family is so thankful for Love for Lily because if it wasn’t for them I don’t think we would have been able to financially be stable. Love for Lily has helped our family stay close even though we can’t be home we have made a form of home here together" - Baby Bridger's Mama

"Here are some pictures of our beautiful, strong little man. For a baby who has been through so much in his 6 months here he is the strongest most resilient baby I have ever met. He makes me proud every single day!!! He is our rainbow baby, our little miracle and nothing is better than looking in his big brown eyes!! The Grant (Ryder’s Love) has helped us get the equipment we need to bring Oliver home finally after a months long NICU stay." - Ollie's Mama
