How To Apply

Applicants must complete all questions of the application in order to be considered for a Wheels With Wings Foundation Quality of Life Grant, including providing contact information and estimates from at least three (3) suppliers and/or contractors for the equipment or renovations requested in the application.
Applicants must print, sign and submit the checklist included with the application.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Applications are accepted year-round and are considered at quarterly Grant Committee meetings. Grants awarded will be considered based on necessity, and cost of the applicant’s request and financial need. There is NO minimum award. Grant awards will be limited up to $5,000. Grants are awarded quarterly and recipient will be notified by phone or mail upon approval. All paperwork submitted including the application will not be returned.

A recipient of a grant may not re-apply with a year of their award.


NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE. Due to the volume of grant applications, we respectfully request no phone calls or emails inquiring on the status of your application. Grant recipients will be notified by phone or mail upon approval.

The Grant Committee of the Wheels With Wings Foundation will review each and every completed request quarterly and make specific recommendations to the Board of Directors for approval. The Board of Directors meets quarterly to authorize and approve grant awards. Notifications, both of awards and declinations, will be mailed out after the Board has met. All supporting materials should be submitted to the address below.

Note: Wheels With Wings will disburse awards based on those who are most in need. Requests will be assessed according to the criteria set forth in the Foundation’s distribution policies, including potential benefit, need for support and personal and outside resources available. Awards will be subject to availability.

Once approved as a recipient of a grant, you may need to complete some additional paperwork. The paperwork will indicate the provider you have chosen and the specifics of the goods or service to be provided. The provider must submit an invoice to the Wheels With Wings Foundation for the goods or services rendered. Upon receipt, a check will be issued directly to the provider within 2 to 3 weeks. No award will be paid directly to the applicant.

Denied applicants may re-apply at any time. A new application will be required.
