Grant Program

Dralla Foundation’s grant program supports adults and children with physical challenges in order to help them experience an unforgettable day!  This is achieved through grant awards to non-profit organizations who share our mission.  Our focus is on fun events and experiences including but not limited to day trips, recreational activities, athletics, etc.  We want to give opportunities for unique, inspiring and fun experiences that are not easily accessible or possible for people with physical challenges.

Grant Awards

Grants are awarded on a yearly basis.  We seek to fund a meaningful percentage of specific programs and events.  Each application is carefully evaluated by Dralla Foundation’s Review Board.
