The Tinina Q. Cade Foundation’s Family BuildingTM Grant provides up to $10,000 per funded family to help with costs of domestic adoption and medical fertility treatment. The only restrictions for applying are
1) You MUST have a diagnosis of infertility from your doctor
2) You MUST be a legal permanent US resident
There are no age limitations or other restrictions currently. The grant is offered once per year, and the number of applications funded as well as the amount of funding depends on the success of the Cade Foundation’s fundraising activities (i.e. the more we raise, the more we can give away). To date, 22 families have been funded. All of our grants are Family Building Grants but we have a special pool of funds set aside for “Savannah Grants” which are only available to Shady Grove Fertility patients undergoing IVF.
Both portions of application (as well as the medical history forms) must be received by the Cade Foundation no later than June 1, 2012 for the application to be considered. Incomplete or late applications will not be reviewed. Part II of the grant and the medical history forms must be mailed into the Cade Foundation’s PO Box (PO Box 372, Owings Mills, MD 21117). Items that are faxed, delivered by courier to the Cade Foundation’s office or sent by any means other than delivery to the PO Box will not be considered. The PO Box will only accept deliveries via the US Post Office and will not accept deliveries from FEDEX, UPS or other courier services. Applicants will be notified by email about funding decisions by October 15, 2012.
For applicants interested in Savannah’s Grant, there is no need to fill out any additional paperwork. Savannah’s Grant is restricted to Shady Grove Fertility patients and therefore all Shady Grove Fertility applicants are automatically entered into the pool for both general Cade Foundation Family Building Grants as well as the Family Building Grant restricted for Savannah\’s Grant.
