Grant Application

Cooper's Cause Foundation Grant is for families with children who have congenital heart defects.

Applications are available for submission twice per year. Our first application period is from March 15th and are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on April 30th. Our second application period is from September 15th and are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on October 31st. Applicants will be notified no more than 30 days after the application deadline. Name of grant recipients will be published by the foundation in means of validation.

Grants are awarded based on the requested material as well as need. Applications will be accepted from applicants within a 75 mile radius of Lawrence, KS and the entire State of Kansas with priority given to those in Douglas County. We will help as many families as our funds will allow. As our funds grow, so will the number and the amount of help we will be able to give. Ineligible requests such as medical bills that have already been paid, submitting for food, clothing, laundry fees and anything deemed non-medical for your child will not be acceptable criteria to submit for a grant request. The awarded funds will range depending on the number of recipients and need.
