Apply for our Fund-A-Dream Grant

Our Fund-A-Dream Recipients are Trailblazers in the Disabilities Community

Each year, the trustees of Paul’s Pals choose one deserving organization that positively impacts children with physical and developmental disabilities to be featured at our annual event where donors are able to learn about the organization’s direct impact and rally behind the cause. The Fund-A-Dream grant recipient is announced in April and is generally under $15,000. If your project budget is higher than $15,000, please consider submitting an LOI for our traditional grant cycle. Learn more about past grantee organizations and projects Paul’s Pals has funded, either fully or partially.
