Rise and Rising Tides Grants

To help support families and organizations during COVID-19, CNF is distributing $100,000 directly into the child neurology community in multiple rounds of grants.

This includes an expansion of our RISE Family Grant portfolio for all families of children with neurologic conditions.

Like individuals, many advocacy organizations across the child neurology community have been heavily impacted by COVID-19. Standing in CNF’s belief that Rising Tides Lift All Boats, we would also like to announce our RISING TIDES grants.

Our second round of applications is now open.

For 501c3 organizations focused on pediatric neurology, apply for one of five of the $10,000 grants here.

The deadline to apply is August 2, 2020.

RISE Family Grants
To support families, we are greatly expanding our existing RISE Family Grants and offering 50 $1,000 awards to families living with a pediatric neurologic condition. Applicants are randomly selected.

For families of children living with a neurologic condition, apply for one of our 50 $1,000 grants here.

The deadline to apply is August 2, 2020.

Here are some of the children and their families who have received a RISE Family Grant in the first round:

RISING TIDES Grants
To support our peers and help keep every aspect of our ecosystem healthy, we inaugurated a new program in May, the RISING TIDES Grants, to provide direct financial assistance to peer organizations that need support. We are offering $10,000 awards to five pediatric neurology focused 501c3 organizations.

Winners are selected using a rubric to ensure objectivity and go through two rounds of evaluation with different CNF staff members.

Congratulations to these five organizations selected as recipients for the first round of RISING TIDES Grants:

CNF’s plan is to continue to raise funds to provide funding to organizations and families throughout the rest of the year.

As we raise more funds, we will move the money straight out to our community. We are in this together.

If you’d like to be a rising tide to help lift up the child neurology community, please reach out to the Child Neurology Foundation at info@childneurologyfoundation.org.
