  • Raise awareness of their disease(s).
  • Support their patients.
  • Strengthen the work of their organization.

Proposals that fall into one of four categories below can be funded up to $2,000 CAD.

  1. Event Planning.
    Grants funded in this category will support hosting information-based events, includingvirtual and in-person events (as is possible given the pandemic circumstances in 2020-2021).

  2. Communications & Marketing.
    Grants funded in this category will support the development and/or purchase of marketing activities and materials that raise awareness of Members’ projects or of the GRIDD--Global Research on the Impact of Dermatological Diseases project.

  3. Advocacy.
    Grants funded in this category will support initiatives that directly support the well-being of patient communitiesand fight against the stigma, shame and other psychosocial challenges faced by dermatology patients.

As funding is limited, applications will be considered and funded based on the order they are received.
