Helping people help people

Dedicated to providing service to our healthcare stakeholders for over 50 years, AliMed launched the AliCares Community outreach initiative to formalize our commitment to corporate citizenship and celebrate this key milestone.

Nursing Education Fund

One of the core pillars of AliCares, the Nursing Education Fund honors the selfless daily efforts of nurses in all healthcare professions.

AliMed created this $10,000 charitable fund to present Scholarships to deserving nursing students in need of a financial boost as they pursue this rewarding career. Selected schools can choose student grant recipients at their discretion based on demonstrated community commitment and academic achievement.

This year’s beneficiary schools -- Brockton Hospital School of Nursing and UMass at Dartmouth Nursing Program -- will present the awards to actively enrolled nursing students. AliMed will also donate medical products and equipment to each participating, accredited institution based on their specific program needs.

Helping people…in the Community

Since its inception, AliCares has delivered thousands of masks to Friends of Boston Homeless, and donated volunteer hours to over 200 employees so they can serve these local organizations, including the Dedham Food Pantry, Friends of Boston’s Homeless, Community Servings, Cradles to Crayons, City to Saddle, Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, 110 Fitness throughout the year.

AliCares is a natural extension of AliMed’s commitment to “helping people help people” in the healthcare community, formalizing its longstanding tradition of service.
