WITH Foundation was created to provide financial support to organizations that promote comprehensive healthcare for adults with developmental disabilities. All grant applications should complement this mission and demonstrate how they will accomplish this overarching goal.

Grants typically provide one year of support (usually between $30,000 and $50,000) but may cover as much as three years to support programming that warrants extended funding. After initial approval, all multi-year grants are subject to annual review before funds for subsequent years are released.

Areas of Support

All projects/programs must complement the mission of WITH Foundation.

Programs that improve delivery of healthcare to adult customers with developmental disabilities and include at least one of the following:

  • Improve health practitioner competency through education and/or training programs
  • Address the current inadequate reimbursement system
  • Advance formal care coordination 
  • Enhance public awareness regarding the inadequacies of developmentally disabled care in order 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, in order to create better technology for all  
  • Social policy research
  • Identify and overcome barriers to high-quality healthcare access
  • General operating support is only considered for grantees that have previously utilized our project funding
