The WITH Foundation was created to provide financial support to organizations that promote comprehensive healthcare for adults with developmental disabilities.
Through the foundation, grants will be awarded for efforts that complement this mission and demonstrate how they will accomplish this overarching goal. Programs that improve the delivery of healthcare to adult consumers with developmental disabilities should include at least one of the following: improve health practitioner competency through education and/or training programs; address the current inadequate reimbursement system; advance innovations in formal care coordination; enhance advocacy regarding the inadequacies of developmentally disabled care to advance systemic change; increase understanding of supported decision-making in healthcare settings; national efforts in digital health that support designers and developers to include the perspectives/experiences of the IDD community within the design process, to create better technology for all; social policy research; and identify and overcome barriers to high-quality healthcare access.
During this grant cycle, WITH will consider grants of up to $100,000, giving preference to organizations that share the foundation’s core values and work to support comprehensive healthcare for adults with I/DD. Additionally, WITH will consider research-focused grants of up to $200,000, recognizing research’s pivotal role in propelling positive change in disability healthcare.
Applicants must be tax-exempt as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service. While San Francisco Bay Area applications may be given preferential consideration, applications from other areas in the United States are not excluded.
Letters of intent are due December 8, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. PT, and upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal, due January 31, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. PT.
