About this funder:



Avery-Fuller-Welch Children’s Foundation provides grants that allow low-income families with children in need of supportive, remedial therapy to have access to those professional services.

Grants are made for:

  • Speech Therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Remedial Education
  • Physical and/or Occupational Therapy

Grants are paid to the service provider/practitioner administering restorative therapy for children (24 years of age or younger) diagnosed with a remedial disability, from low-income families.

Grant selection is based upon:

  • Evidence of a strong motivation in the child, the therapist, and the family. In partnership with the Foundation, the therapist is required to provide a discount on services for the child. Families are encouraged to contribute to the cost if possible.
  • Favorable prognosis for achieving independent functioning or significant progress towards the goals set forth within the date parameters of the grant period.
  • Inability to pay or obtain full support elsewhere.

For reference, please note that the typical grant size issued by the foundation ranges from $3,000-$10,000 with an average of $6,000.
