Marjorie Stanzler Financial Aid Fund

Est. 2015

The Marjorie Stanzler Fund was established in 2015 by the staff upon Marjorie’s retirement from the Schwartz Center in honor of her 18 years of love and dedication to furthering its mission of ensuring that compassion remains at the heart of healthcare.

The Stanzler Fund provides free access to Schwartz Center programs and training to organizations in need. These sites include Veterans Affairs hospitals, safety net community hospitals and Indian Health Services sites, such as Gallup Indian Medical Center, which is one of the largest service units of the Navajo Tribe. More than 48,000 people trust Gallup for their care annually.

“Actively tending to our well-being as healthcare workers has never been more important,” said a physician at Gallup. “We can no longer be passive witnesses to the trauma we see, but rather we need to make time to care for ourselves so that we can continue to care for others.”


The Need: In 2022, it is reported that at least 1/3 of front line staff are considering leaving healthcare, including 66% of critical care nurses and 67% of nursing assistants in hospitals and nursing homes.

This rapid burnout is resulting in an estimated 4.68B annual cost to the United States. If we don’t support our caregivers, who will?

The Impact: With more than 25 years of experience in supporting, educating, and training hundreds of thousands of caregivers, we know that our programs can make a difference in the mental health and emotional well-being of caregivers.
