Some tips when applying for grants:

 

  •  Read the criteria and requirements carefully. That way you are not wasting your time filling out applications and the non-profit can focus on the people they have set up their program for.

  • Speak with your child’s physician or therapist to see if a particular equipment would be helpful or if there might be a better choice before applying. 

  • If you are chosen for a grant, follow up with a thank you letter and pictures. Many non-profits depend on these updates to share with their donors so that other children can be served.

  • Don’t give up. If you are not chosen for a grant, check out local lending closets, ask around in local mom groups or set up a personal fundraiser. We all need a little help sometimes.
