Urgent Financial Assistance

Helping CF families in need

The Piper’s Angels Foundation (PAF) has established the “Urgent Financial Assistance” (UFA)  program to assist people battling cystic fibrosis (CF) in need of medically necessary and time sensitive financial assistance.  People with CF can find themselves in situations with financial stressors due to extended time out of work, in the hospital or unexpected necessary expenses. It’s part of our mission to help make those situations less stressful anyway we can!

This organization was a blessing to us when we needed it most. Like so many, Covid has made it close to impossible to find and pay for items, needed in the CF community. At the time, Pipers Angels assisted us with a  financial shoulder to lean on. If you're looking for a place to give, please consider donating here. I'm a real human trying to make it work as a single parent on this earth.  I can say  that angels are definitely here on earth.

Who can apply?

Individuals with CF or legal guardians of minors with CF may apply for an urgent financial assistance grant. 

 

What will PAF financially assist with? 

We will financially assist with medically necessary needs that, if not met, will negatively impact the health of the individual with CF. 

 

How much financial assistance can I apply for?

At this time, due to limitations brought forth by COVID-19, we are only able to provide grants of $250-$500.

 

How often can I apply for the Piper’s Angels UFA grant?

Due to the quantity of applications received, each individual with CF is eligible to apply for a UFA grant once in a rolling calendar year. If your family has more than one child with CF you may apply for a grant for the other child after 6 months of the initial submission.
