Education and Awareness Grants
Grants up to $1,000 each to support starting community groups, or for short duration programs and activities to increase education and awareness about arthritis.
Examples could include (but are not limited to): hosting a healthy cooking workshop, an arthritis awareness poster campaign, a meditation series, hosting a guest speaker, arthritis awareness day activity, or other awareness activities for people living with arthritis or their caregivers.
Up to $5,000 each to support a community-based program to help people living with arthritis and/or their caregivers. This grant may also be used to fund a program pilot.
Examples could include (but are not limited to): a facilitated weekly exercise group, a food and nutrition program, a community garden to increase food security and social connections for people living with arthritis, an assistive device program, a facilitated support group, a weekly dinner club, or other initiative to benefit those living with arthritis.
We encourage creative ideas that will help foster social connections and provide benefit to people living with arthritis.
