Jane Nugent Cochems Trust

Help for physicians in need
Are you a physician in need of temporary financial assistance?

The Jane Nugent Cochems Charitable Trust provides for the distribution of funds with certain limited criteria for physicians who are experiencing financial need.

The decision on who will receive these distributions will be on the basis of the financial information submitted, and will be solely the decision of the President of the Colorado Medical Society.

The amount of the distributions will generally be between $5,000 and $10,000, but in serious crisis situations, the amount may be increased to the estimated annual income of the trust, which is currently $15,000. These are expected to be one-time distributions, but in exceptional circumstances, additional years may be considered.
