Tuesday Treasure #39 Aubrey Rose Foundation

Aubrey Rose FundationThe Mission of the Aubrey Rose Foundation

Their mission is to help families caring for children with life threatening illnesses with their focus being on the family unity. They strive to lift families from life's complexities during this difficult time by providing emotional and financial support.


Application Timelines

Grants are awarded on a quarterly basis. The Foundation's Board of Trustees meet in March, June, September and December. Applicants will be notified no later than 60 days after the Board of Trustees' meeting.


The Aubrey Rose Foundation helps families with children who are currently living with a life-threatening medical condition. Grants are awarded based on need. If a family has outstanding medical bills that insurance will not cover, our Foundation can possibly help out a family in need until our annual funds have been exhausted. As our funds grow, so will the number and the amount of help we will be able to give. We appreciate families just asking for one grant per family so that we can help as many families as possible.

Ineligible Requests

Ineligible requests such as medical bills already paid, submitting for food, clothing, laundry fees, mortgage payments and associated homeowner bills and anything deemed non-medical for your child will not be acceptable criteria to submit a grant request.


Apply at and if you have any questions contact 513-265-5801.
