Grants of up to $50,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, including patient advocacy organizations, academic institutions, community groups, and medical societies, to benefit individuals with cystic fibrosis from underrepresented communities. Funding is intended for innovative, patient-centric programs for the CF community. Applications must be for a new initiative or for a significant expansion of an existing program.

For this year’s CF Circle of Care grant cycle, Vertex will consider applications that address the following topics:

  • Supporting persons with CF living a fuller, more engaged life with a focus on raising awareness of underrepresented patient populations
  • Addressing the psycho‐social challenges patients and caregivers face with CF with a focus on raising awareness of underrepresented patient populations
  • Improving the overall support of CF patient family members with a focus on raising awareness of underrepresented patient populations
  • Supporting patients taking more ownership of their healthcare, such as strategies that assist with transition, adherence and navigating new environments with CF with a focus on raising awareness of underrepresented patient populations

If the application is for a significant expansion, the request must clearly outline the need for the expansion and what improvements or enhancements are being proposed. Requests for new initiatives or enhancements that have already started will not be considered.
