What are Impact Grants?
Impact Grants provides grants of up to $10,000 of funding per year for up to two years to individuals or nonprofit organizations for programs that benefit the CF community. The best ideas come from personal experience, and no one knows the ins and outs of life with CF like the CF community.
Launched in 2016, Impact Grants reflects the Foundation's commitment to not only cure cystic fibrosis, but also to help people with CF live full lives. Impact Grants have supported a wide range of ideas that benefit people with cystic fibrosis including:
- Voice lessons to build respiratory strength and self-confidence
- Online wellness coaching and personal training
- Virtual job training workshops
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is now accepting applications for 2022 Impact Grants.

Last year's awardees have programs that focus on virtually supporting the overall well-being of those living with the disease. From physical wellness to connectivity and creativity, each program offers an activity to support an individual's sense of living and thriving with CF:

In addition to the three new grants in 2021, three virtual 2020 Impact Grants have been renewed for one year:

Community Support Grants
The Foundation also offers Community Support Grants, which provide additional support to previous Impact Grant recipients who continue to innovate how they engage and empower people with CF and their families. All programs are evaluated by members of the CF community and are committed to demonstrating a high standard of service as they work to scale their reach and impact.
