Brother’s Keeper is your safeguard against catastrophic illness or injury. Brother’s Keeper is a low-cost, Bible-inspired program enabling CHM participants to meet medical needs that exceed the $125,000 limit per medical illness specified in the CHM Guidelines (click here to get a copy of the Guidelines.)
Gold members: Signing up for Brother's Keeper provides unlimited cost support per illness (diagnosis).
Silver and Bronze members: Signing up for Brother’s Keeper provides an additional $100,000 of cost support. With each annual Brother’s Keeper renewal, participants receive an additional $100,000 of assistance, up to $1 million per illness.
For medical needs exceeding $125,000, Brother’s Keeper participants send a quarterly designated gift amount (average amount: $25 per membership unit) to the CHM office, where it is deposited in an audited escrow account. There also is a $40 annual fee per membership.
Members receive a quarterly Brother’s Keeper letter containing a list of medical needs exceeding $125,000. Participants are asked to send cards and letters of encouragement to listed individuals.
Medical need eligibility is determined by CHM Guidelines and by enrollment in the Brother’s Keeper program.
