Grants for Children with Special Needs: Where to Apply for Fund

Do you have a child with innate mental and learning disorders? You don’t have to hide or treat them indifferently. Just like other children, they also have the right to live and enjoy life. You will find foundations that give grants for children with special needs. Search them out. They can help you raise your child the right way.

Children with special needs are the nation’s weakest people. They cannot live and act alone due to conditions that impair their understanding and behavior.  They are unable to interact with other people. Though they are distinct from the normal ones, they also deserve a comfy life.

With their situations, they have special needs that are often too costly. They need unique teaching method, a caring institution, and a more kind attention.  As such, most parents turn to foundations that are willing to help them.

Foundations That Give Grants for Children

The US has non-profits and children advocates that offer countless and humanistic approaches to young beings with special needs. These foundations give grants to applicants whose main goal is to aid these helpless people. They see to it that they give equitable and comfortable life to special children.

If you need grant to carry out your noble cause for special children, you may try these charitable groups:

Crusade for Children. It assists non-profits, schools, and hospitals tending to children with special needs up to age 18. It sustains civic groups with passion to help these special young people located in the States of Indiana and Kentucky. You may go to if you want to know their grant guidelines.

Children’s Charity Fund, Inc. (CCFI). CCFI is a 501(c) (3) non-profit foundation that provides at least $500 to children with special needs. You may visit to apply for fund.

Disabled Children Relief Fund. It offers equipment to children with physical disability, cerebral palsy, and other mental illnesses. Also, it is a tax-exempt foundation that seeks donation from other entities. To donate or ask for help, you may visit

National Autism Association. Its flagship program FOUND gives $54,400.00 to children with autism located in eight US counties. If you get this grant money, you have to use it for life-saving tools and materials needed for the survival of these children. If you find the grant interesting, you may visit for more information.

Tending to special children needs patience and enough funds to sustain their unique wants. But looking for free monies entail a good proposal. In doing so, you can convey a good cause and convince funders that you deserve the grant.  If you need help, you may turn to grant writing services. They have writers who can create a proposal for your project.

    I want to start by saying that I admire all the endless time and patience that parents of special needs children give to their families. It is a job that so many parents do without any thought at all. I am a special needs teacher in Ohio. I have taught in all grades. I have had the pleasure of working with all special needs students in my district and so many other districts in my area through special needs programs that are parent oriented. However, there is not much offered for special needs children in my area. I often take my students home with me to go shopping, to the movies or just have a sleep over. I would love to open a commuity center for special needs children. I want to offer exercise, intellectual and social environments for these children and adults that have no other place to turn. The problem is I have hit a brick wall. I have turned to my local chamber of commerece and have got no help. If anyone is able to give me some assistance on how or where I may receive funding I would appreciate it. I am certain that many of the parents that I have worked with in the past would give reference to what I am stating. I can be reached by email at or my phone number 740-424-3907. Thank you so much in advance for any help you can give me.

    My name is Ivy I have a 13 year old son that is special needs. My son is legally blind. has cerbral palsy, a vp shunt and has a seizure disorder. My son is 13 years old but is mentally only 2-3 years old with limited speech communication. I think as a parent of a special needs child it should be easier to get money for things that u want to provide for your child. My son would love a swing set but with his age and weight he needs a metal heavy duty swing set that would grow with him these swing sets are very expensive but this would not only help my child physically and mentally but most of all it would make him happy in his life to have a swing set in the back yard that he can swing on anytime he want to. If anyone has any suggestions please email me and keep it going for all those parents out there with special needs.

    HI, i would like to share the services we provide for special needs children from 0-21 years old. Out Came the Sun Foundation, Inc. provides community-based therapy services (Speech, Occupational, Physical and Cognitive therapy) to residents of the District of Columbia and neighboring Maryland counties. The approximate 60% of families that have financial means will continue to privately pay and insurance agencies will continue to be successfully billed. However, through non-profit funding to Out Came the Sun Foundation, Inc., the remaining 30-40% of low income families will be afforded the same intensity of services that are provided to private medical insurance families.

    My name is Shantel, I am the mother to 13 children, 7 of whom are special needs, 6 are medically fragile.
    My husband and I have adopted the last 6 children, I am working hard to see if there is a grant out there for batteries, and a van.
    I know it may sound strange seeking a grant for batteries, but every week we purchase approx 30AA and 12 AAA batteries… I am amazed at the added cost for their therapy toys! I am thankful that my children have toys that help them enjoy their days more and we don’t ever put them away to save money, but jeepers it is so expensive.

    We also have a 15 passenger van, it is a little older, no CD player, blown speaker so the radio is obnoxious, and we have 3 children in wheel chairs so we can’t transport the children together in our van while in their chairs… Our van is not handicap accessible, we usually swap them out back and forth from car seat to wheel chair, but they are getting older and we are getting older and not as strong as we once were!

    Any advice?

    Hello, I am a mom of two ASD children. We reside in NYC and have been homeless for 2 1/2 years. My children are 17 and 15 now. It isn’t easy watching them grow with no real home environment. Can you tell me the best sites or agencies to apply for Special Needs Grants. I don’t know where to begin.
    Thank you
