Grant Opportunities

The Colorado Fund for Muscular Dystrophy (CFMD) was established in 2012 by friends and family of Aileen Colorado, who passed away from complications with pneumonia in 2011. Born with congenital muscular dystrophy, Aileen never let her disability stop her from living a fulfilling life and a career.
In memory of Aileen, CFMD made it their mission to increase the quality of life of individuals living with muscular dystrophy. In addition to sponsoring children to attend the Muscular Dystrophy Association Summer Camp in Wakefield, Virginia, CFMD offers grants to individuals with muscular dystrophy who are in need of financial assistance.
Grants may be awarded for, but not limited to, equipment or services such as assistive technology, therapies, medical supplies, home modifications, or recreation center membership.
Applicant must be a Virginia resident to be eligible for the grant.
The maximum request amount per application is $1,000, payable to a single vendor.
