Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation Invites Applications for Pediatric Cancer Patient-Assistance Programs


Deadline: August 5, 2013

Established in 1999 by NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon, the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation works to support children battling cancer by funding programs that improve patients’ quality of life, treatment programs that increase survivorship, and pediatric medical research dedicated to finding a cure.

Through its Promise Circle grant initiative, the foundation is inviting applications from programs that help pediatric cancer patients and family members cope with the emotional challenges they face during diagnosis and treatment, financial assistance programs to serve the underinsured, and survivorship programs that address the needs of children in remission.

Grant request amounts should be based on proposed program budgets and will be considered on an individual basis. In 2012, the foundation awarded nearly $1.5 million in grants for pediatric cancer research, treatment, and patient support programs.

To be eligible, applicants must be a tax-exempt nonprofit organization with a focus on pediatric cancer through patient-assistance programs.

See the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation Web site for eligibility and application guidelines as well as a list of grants made in previous years.
