Charity of the week: Arthritis National Research Foundation

The Arthritis National Research Foundation has funded approximately 200 scientists since its inception forty years ago.

The Arthritis National Research Foundation (curearthritis.org) funds innovative research to find treatments and cures for the estimated 50 million Americans suffering from some form of arthritis. For 40 years, the organization has sought to be a breeding ground for new treatment ideas, providing grants to promising young scientists at major universities and research institutes who are working on cutting-edge research into arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, and osteoarthritis. ANRF has funded approximately 200 scientists since its inception, and their research not only seeks to prevent and treat the many forms of arthritis, but also contributes to research being done on other autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and multiple sclerosis. 

Each charity we feature has earned a four-star overall rating from Charity Navigator, which ranks not-for-profit organizations on the strength of their finances, their control of administrative and fund-raising expenses, and the transparency of their operations. Four stars is the group’s highest ranking.
