Start Your Application Process
Who can apply for assistance? How does it work?
FUND IT FORWARD will accept applications from any person who has a diagnosed disability or medical condition and is in need of a medical device or equipment that can enhance the quality of his or her life.
FUND IT FORWARD operates on a pay it forward model, which means volunteers raise money for future needs.
Families in need of medical or adaptive equipment for their child need to engage in fundraising efforts as part of the application process. Each applicant is reviewed based on a number of criteria which includes fundraising efforts. Successful volunteering efforts determine how many families, like yours, FUND IT FORWARD can assist.
