Foundation / Corporation
Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF)
Grants ranging from $500 to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations to provide therapeutic bodywork and massage to marginalized groups. Funding is also intended to provide massage services in places where it is not yet available. By providing massage services and therapy, grant recipients will help underserved communities achieve their health potential.
This program is designed to promote working partnerships between the massage therapy profession and community-based organizations.
Eligible expense items include: salaries/wages for those involved in the community service project, including partial allowances for a Principal Therapist and co-therapists to cover some release time from other activities necessary for the pursuance of the project; marketing, relevant supplies, e.g., massage oil and case history forms; travel necessary for the community service project and grant writing costs and/or administration expenses. Please note that although wages are eligible for funding, the Foundation looks favorably on total or partial volunteerism as it reflects a good use of resources and supports the Foundation’s value of philanthropy through community service.
