Chive Charities provides one-time grants for therapy equipment and sessions not covered by insurance, home and vehicle modifications, mobility items, developmental and learning devices, and other medical needs as recommended by a medical professional.
Applicants who have raised $20,000 or received items that value $20,000 or more may not be eligible for a grant. Other financial limits may apply.
Chive Charities Green Ribbon Fund deals exclusively with medically related grants/items and three specific categories of recipients: Rare Medical Conditions, Veterans/Military, and First Responders. Find more information by visiting their website. As a guide, Chive uses the NORD list and the GARD list of rare diseases to classify whether a medical condition is rare. Chive does place an emphasis on the rarity of the medical condition. If your medical condition is not rare, it may be disqualified from consideration.
