The Arthritis National Research Foundation (ANRF) is the only charity solely dedicated to funding research to cure arthritis. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the U.S., affecting 52 million adults and 300,000 children. To find a cure, ANRF funds newer, cutting-edge scientists conducting arthritis research at nonprofit institutions across America. These scientists are the best of the best, but need funding to test their novel ideas. ANRF gives these MD and/or PhD researchers the financial boost they need to test these innovative ideas. Over 250 top young scientists have been funded by ANRF since 1970. Grants awards are a maximum of $100,000 per year.
ANRF has received Charity Navigator’s highest 4-star rating for seven consecutive years, something only 2 percent of U.S. charities can claim.
