Grant Application Guidelines

Fund A Life, NFP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to help families and individuals overcome life-altering and threatening circumstances. We provide that aid in form of individually approved grants that are personalized to each person/s case. Below is a list of the most commonly approved grants to provide some insight on the types of things we typically can consider:

  • financial burden from a major health issue / diagnosis
  • financial burden left by the passing of a loved one
  • requirement for a specific medical device or type of equipment needed
  • travel / respite for emotional or physical treatment / recovery of any kind
  • means to make a modification to a residency or automobile for the safety of a loved one

Please understand the above funded causes are not limited to those listed, but rather the most commonly received requests. We will individually assess each grant application, and if the request is deemed to fit within our foundation's mission, a grant will be awarded per the application process outlined further below on this page.

The following guidelines must be met by any/all applicants for a grant application to be considered:
